I had two chickens taken last week while free ranging... so I stopped letting them out of their run. Now I've had one taken out of the run. It's a 6 foot high 10x10 dog kennel with the coop inside of it. The only sign of the bird is some feathers by the door to the coop. She was taken sometime before 10:30 at night (we have fireworks here labor day weekend, so we closed them in later than usual). She was a speckled sussex (and the others that I've lost were a maran and a welsummer), so a fairly large breed. I would think much too big for a hawk to carry off. Any ideas? Also, their food was knocked over but not eaten so that makes me think it wasn't a racoon. DH is putting his game camera up there today. Hopefully we'll figure something out.
