    Found out what it was last night, I decided to lock everyone up in the coop last night set up a live trap and when i went to do my rounds this morning to my suprise there was a nice size coon sitting in there Ive had many problems with coons with the cat food and such, didnt realize they would do this sort of damage to my birds. Im a firm believer in the three "S" program for removing such pests
