    do not know what is happing.
    in the last month i have lost both of my male bantums. no feather,no body just gone!!
    do not understand . i have 17 full size birds running around the yard and the bantums roam the barn yard with the sheep and goats and ducks. could it be a hawk? fox? the last few time i just ran to the store for something a when i went to put them away for the night someone came up missing he was their at noon [​IMG]
    thinking i need to make a closed in yard with a net on top for them.where would i get it and who would have the best buy. need advise.

    A Cat is my guess.......vanished without a trace or even a feather... I'd say cat. I just had 2 chicks that could fit through the fencing disappear without a trace..........caught the cat in the act of hunting for a 3rd.

    i wish i could say it was a cat but i have 2 very large tom cats that are always in the barn, they have been with them since they where chicks and never bother them before. i will keep an eye on them just in case your right . [​IMG]
    i will let you know if i do find them to be the culpurit [​IMG]
