I came home today about 3:00 to find 1 dead rooster and 3 dead hens (one of which was not mine). When I got out of my car I spied a coyote running away through field. I have one hen not accounted for, I couldn't find the body. I have one hen INSIDE the house under a light but she is gasping and I think she's not going to make it. Bloods coming from her mouth but no punctures I can see. Thank god the other hens were in the coop snuggled against the wall, and my big roo Ron was hiding his girls under a pine tree. His poor brother was the unlucky one (and he had survived a horrible raccoon attack that split open is back earlier this year!) Like an idiot I thought they would be fine outside of the pen. This is the first time I have really let them out and run for errands. Now I know better. The neighbor says 4 more of his are missing. Our other neighbors cat went missing 2 weeks ago. I've let all of the other neighbors know (except for one, they are not very friendly) particularly the one that just moved in with kids and a small dog. Can animal control do anything? The two neighbors that have lost animals say they are going to try and shoot him, I'm all for that---I just can't do it myself because I'll miss. *tearing my hair out* I just started my pen extension yesterday, not soon enough!!
