So my chickens frequently hop the fence and roam the hill right next to my house. I bring them in every time I can but sometimes I don't see them. They always come back, though. Today, however, I saw a coyote and wanted to make sure my chickens were ok. Two of them were missing. I looked everywhere for them and can't find them. It's now dusk and they haven't come back so I'm assuming they were eaten. Is there anyway to confirm this? Do they lose feathers when they get eaten by a coyote or what? And if they didn't get eaten, is there any possibility that they just went a bit too far and didn't make it home on time, so they roosted somewhere else?
