    Over the weekend when we went to let our ducks outside, our drake was dead right by the door. Blood all over the place. We're trying to figure out what happened. There are no holes or anything in the barn that anything could have gotten inside. We have seen rats and my husband put some bait down and has found dead ones, pretty good size, but still haven't found any way for anything to have gotten inside. The girls were all huddled in a corner shaking and refused to come outside that whole day. Any idea what it could have been or how it could have gotten in?
