Our mother hen, 'Grey' was decapitated last night. I did some research on the archives and Must Reads, and don't know if the culprit is a raccoon or opossum. Regrettably, I've been slacking in closing the coop gate at night and something helped themselves to some easy pickins. There was at least 4 birds in there at the time of the attack and only Grey was killed. There was oodles of feathers and it looked like some from several birds but the survivors seem uninjured. There was no blood and the head/neck was pulled off at its base in the chest cavity. And that was the only injury...and certainly the mechanism of death. I'm borrowing a friends trap and am just not to sure what to bait it with. I live within City limits and have seen cats, skunks, raccoons, and opossums. Any ideas would be appreciated!
