I just need advice here. We just had a massive massacre. 7 chickens were killed, and only one body left in the run. Fortunately 5 chicks made it into the coup and said safe, but the other 6 disappeared with only one body as evidence. We can't figure out what did this. There are no feathers in the run and the only evidence was the one body that was shredded but wasn't completely eaten. Our current theories 1: fox- i am discounting this because 6 were taken with no feathers indicating little to no struggle between 7 birds 2: pack of raccoons- its possible a couple climbed the fence but once again- no struggle and only one carcass left behind 3: rats/mink- doubtful because of the lack of bodies 4: extremely hungry owl or hawk- the only reason I'm discarding this is because it took so many- i mean 6 chicks disappeared without a trace If anyone has any ideas please tell me, I am very concerned for my girls! Also if you have any ideas on how to keep them safe in the future that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your help!
