Look here For what happened to us a couple of days ago. We moved all of those birds up to the house area with the layers. Now this morning my poor husband finds more carnage. The Infirmary. Poured cement floor with 6 foot chain link. Last year we raised 25 meat birds in this same area and never lost a single one. All the birds in there that were injured from the prior attack, but not enough to need to be put down (4 of them) dead. Two dead without a mark on them, heart attack from fright? Two completely ripped to shreds. One mostly gone, just 2" of back and the legs and it's head still there, intestines and innards spilled all over the ground. The other just decapitated. Nothing else wrong with it. Head laying right next to the body. WHAT is this? We found no prints. But lots of digging around the foundation of the run. The only thing we can think of is that it climbed up and over, or went through a very small 3" area that opens up when you push on the gate. Now my head is reeling. This is no dog. The kills from the last incident and this one look identical. It's got to be either a racoon, or a weasel I think. DH says we also have birds just missing. I now have to refund money to customers because I don't have enough chickens left for what was ordered. I have got to find out what this is and remedy this situation. Also, we had about 60 other birds 5 feet from this chain link/cement combo fenced in by nothing but 4 foot welded wire, and it didn't touch them. Stupid thing. Could have had a much easier meal. Tonight we sit out and wait I think.
