I'm still shaking from the adreline rush... I was sitting at the table, and I herd a scuffle and squak, I saw a bobcat make a tight turn. I ran to go outside, grabbed a bb gun, but the bobcat was scampering into the wood with the chicken in its mouth! It ran when it herd me, and it looked like the chicken was dead. I am so sad. We went from 6 chickens to 4! I am thinking of keeping the chickens in the coop from now on... We do not have a rooster so that could be the problem. Would a rooster have kept the bob cat away?
