I checked on my chickens a about 2 p.m. and all 14 + roo were there, then at 3 p.m. they were ALL GONE!!! Not a trace, 5 have returned, and my mom scearched for 30 min after that and still couldn't find any . I NEED REASURANCE that a cyote or dog didn't get them
Wow, that's scary! Hope they have just scattered due to some fright, but will soon return all in good health. I would freak out to go outside and find NO chickens around.
Here's hoping everything is all right.
That is sad. I am so sorry.
Whatever did this will be back for more - lock them up tight till their area can be predator proofed.
A drop or two of Rescue Remedy in their water for a few days may help with the stress from this trauma.
