I am so bummed, eight out of my 18 chickens disappeared last night. I have never had this happen and cannot figure out what could've taken them. I let my chickens out when I get home from work and they put themselves up around dusk and I lock the coop up. I fed and watered them around 7:30pm and let them stay out for a bit longer. I went down to the coop about an hour later and noticed some feathers and one dead chicken. It had a puncture wound on its breast, but that is about the only injury I could find. I ran back to the house to grab a light and when I checked in on my other chickens, half of them were gone!! My husband went out searching with a flashlight because we have some woods and the chickens love to hang out there, but he didn't find a trace of any chickens. He did find another chicken of ours about 100 feet away from the coop and he scared a possum away from it. Therwcis no way a possum could take 8 chickens in an hour and a half is there? I am in Indiana so, we don't have bears or anything. Has anyone had any experience with several chickens being taken in a short time frame all at once? I am so beside myself as to what could have done this.
