We are having serious trouble with loosing birds just before dusk. Within an hour of sunset, we have now lost 3 ducks and one chicken. We are at a loss as to what is getting our birds. The birds seem to disappear without a trace. We've tried to set a trap, but so far, neither peanut butter or salmon has attracted anything at all. Local experts suggest it can't be a raccoon or bobcat since it's still daytime, and are suggesting instead it may be a bird of prey. We do have a dog, but this happens when she is in the house. She used to have to chase raccoons away when we first got her, but since they seem to know better than to come and hang around. At this point, we are at a loss. At this rate, the rest of the chickens will be gone in another month, and we might as well give up on this hobby. Hoping someone can help us, otherwise we are throwing in the towel. Chicken keeping is way too difficult and so far doesn't seem economically viable either, it's more expensive to keep them as opposed to buying eggs. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as we've enjoyed having birds around.
