I am so mad at myself. I had 8, 5wk old chicks. Today was pretty in Atlanta so I decided to let them out of their brooder box in the basement and out into the yard. I kept checking on them, but the last time I went out I found one laying on the ground dead with a puncture in its breast, bleeding, and then I found 6 of them hiding. I couldn't find the eighth ones body but I found a mess of feathers not far away from the dead chick. The six that were hiding are okay, but obviously scared. I feel terrible. Do you think it was a hawk? One carried away and one left behind? SO sad!
