So I was greeted this morning by my beloved hens head, laying just outside the coop. My dog had recently ripped up the chainlink, and clearly my repairs were not good enough. Some little critter slipped by. I fixed up the wire better, looked all over for her body, but I have not found it yet. No feathers, no blood, no nothing, I only found her head. No bite marks on the back of her neck, it looks like someone just bit it clean off. I am very confused, at first I thought a raccoon had done it but now I'm not so sure because from what I know they usually eat the head. Any advice would be much appreciated. I live in southern california, and I know for sure we have coyotes, raccoons, opossums, mountain lions, and maybe bobcats but I'm not sure. It was for sure not a feral housecat b/c we are too rural for that. The hen killed was a Belgian d'Uccle, for those unfamiliar with the breed, they are teeny tiny smaller than the average bantam. No other hens are harmed. I also considered rats, but as far as I know we only have a mouse problem. I'm going to go ahead and put up a raccoon trap and see if I get anything, Thanks so much for reading this and taking the time to help me.
