went out just after sundown but still daylight to shut the chickens in their house. there were feathers of my black banty outside the fence.............a 6 ft chain link. chickens could not get out. so i looked everywhere in the yard but found no trace of anything but dog kept running and smelling like something must be there. then in the morning outside the shop door there were more black feathers...........just feathers. so i figure someting carried the hen out of the chicken yard and must have been in tree or on shop roof when i was searching the nite before. would a hawk do this or an owl or what? a puzzle. it was still daylight when this happened.
