Something took my Silver Spangled Hamburg hen Tuesday night, leaving only a small pile of feathers. Then this morning, I let out the the three remaining hens, a Buff Orpington, Salmon Favorelle, and a Buttercup, and around lunchtime, we discovered tons of feathers, and Puffles, the poor Faverolle hen, beheaded, half-eaten, and extremely bloody. Also about a month ago, something took my black Silkie hen, leaving no trace of any feathers. We live in the city, but we have raccoons, Oppusoms, Coyotes, Hawks, Owls, and we've even see some foxes about a mile from our house. We thought our hen pen was pretty predator proof, as it is covered with wire all around, and has strong netting on top. The only place something could get in, is if they were to climb up about 6-7 feet of wire, and squeeze through the iron fence, which has a little space up top that is about 1-2 feet tall, and half a foot wide. Any ideas on what it could be that is killing the poor girls? There are only two left now. We thought raccoon or possum, but they don't hunt during broad daylight do they? Could it be a fox?
