So yesterday afternoon I came home from work and found one my Silkies had been killed by something. She was found several feet outside of her run. Her head and neck area were pretty much mauled but still attached with only one side of her eaten (very little blood). Where her body was there was a lot of feather, 2 piles to be exact. I apologize for being graphic but I'm worried that what killed my Silkie will come back for the rest of my flock. If this helps, we lost our rooster about a week ago as well, however I only found a pile of his feathers underneath a tall tree by our property. My guess was a hawk. I do live in a rural area (Gloucester, VA). Thank you for all the help!
