So I have (had) 12 hens who are 9 months old and about half of them are starting to molt. Tonight I found one of them dead on the coop floor. She was "face down" and her back area was flayed open and missing quite a bit of flesh and other bits (I mean bare bones were showing). I find it odd that if it were a predator, that it wouldn't have dragged her off. So, is it possible there was some blood where new feathers were coming in and the girls attacked her? It didn't look like they ate much of their food today. How can I protect the others from getting attacked by the flock too?
