Something snatched one of my Silkies last night. Pulled her through the 2X3 inch wire surrounding a small opening I patched in the bottom of the pen. Lesson learned, I will patch it with small hardware cloth today. Don't know why the Silkies insist on sleeping outside of the roosting box, but they do. Until last night I have had no issues with predators and I have been raising chickens for two years now. All that was left was a little blood and a few black feathers. Any ideas on what I am dealing with? No tracks, scat or carcass left. I live in Northern Kentucky.

wow really, makes sense. good job on getting them. It never hurts to set the trap, well at least it never hurts the chooks, and you
I would set a few more days and see if any one else in lurking.
