Just last night something took my sweetheart gander, Lewis along with 2 of my Muscovy hens... it's been a terrible day today, to say the least. The moment I heard Lewis scream I jumped up and ran outside with the flashlight, barefoot and all in the rain... stupid in hindsight because I am SURE it was a Bobcat, not a raccon like I have dealt with before. The entire coop was EMPTY and after closing the 2 chicken pens i ran back inside for a coat & shoes so i could search the field/yard & creek. Thankfully the remaining ducks in my flock were in the middle of the swollen creek and a few in the duck house(brooding).... still no Lewis though, I knew he was gone when he didn't make a noise when I called for him. Well now everyone except about 5 ducks REFUSE to come more than half way back to the coop... i tried forever today before it was getting dark. Bread, cheerios, scratch.. nothing worked. They wouldnt even go more than halfway for the bread! I HAVE to get them back into the pen but apparently the attack has seriously traumatized them. I don't know what to do except for take away ALL food and starve them into coming back to the coop... it sounds mean but i like hungry more than dead. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to coax them in without starving them? I just don't wanna lose anymore of my babies.
