Went out to the coop yesterday at dinner time and found three leghorns and one old lady speckled Sussex missing. No evidence at all of struggle except the red Velcro leg band from one of the leghorns lying in the run - still in the closed position. We're in Upstate NY and there was absolutely no sign of a struggle other than the leg band. I know we have a pack of coyotes nearby as I can hear them screaming at night during the summer months. How the heck did they get into the run, though, and get out again? The coop is a modest but strong, newly-built affair with hardware fabric buried around the perimeter. The run is a 10' X 20' chain-link with a latching door and hardware fabric buried 1' around the perimeter. It also has aviary netting on top. When I discovered the loss I did note that the latch on the fence door was "off" a bit, but the door was still closed. I'm thinking human or coyote, but can't believe any human would do it because we live out in the country and the coop is well back from the road - about an acre. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
