My birds are gone!!!

    One by one they're disappearing.
    I'd say at the rate of one per week.
    I expect the last one to be gone tonight.

    I find feathers all over the place, yet the coop is tighter than a drum. No way in, no way out, and I never see/hear any predators.
    Sometimes I find a pile of entrails,other times not. Usually the head is right there with them.
    The bones are rarely found though, and there is very little blood.

    These birds were all about ten months old.

    I know this is the wrong forum, but there was a waiting line at the other one.

    The wife says we can get more birds. But told me to stop eating them so quickly.

    And don't forget to tip your waitress you bums.

    Ah Joe, I just gotta ask...

    What breed of chickens you got there, giving pork chops?

    If you've crossed your chicken with a good pig, are you
    getting pig eggs in the morning? Sausage and eggs in one

    Like you, I was a newbe when I got my first chickens. Didn't
    know a thing...Man at the chicken store asked me what kind
    of chickens I wanted....I said original and extra-crispy. I thought
    they were breeds.

    Wondering who had the "sausage" and who had the egg, cos that kinda cross sounds a bit eye-watering!
