    The other day we found a chicken dead in the chicken lot.(Tom and Hen are with them) The only thing we coud see was blood on the head. What I think happened is this? My Turkey hen is lsetting on her eggs in her house. The chicken may have went in there and the hen chased her out and killedher. I think. This is the only thing I could think of. The chicken was not mutilated just pecked in the head. No feathers all over. She hadn't been sick. Does this sound possible? The Turkey hen went after our dog when he stuck his nose in her house.

    She was most likely killed by the Tom. We had a Tom try to mate with both the duck and a hen, and he nearly killed both of them.
