Last week, we heard a ruckus in the run. Looked out and found a bobcat circling the area. I went outside and as I rounded the corner to full view, I saw one of my chickens fly up and out of the run, only then to be eaten by a coyote who came bounding out of the woods. It was freaky!!! We walked into the run after that and saw the location from which the hen flew out and there was a pile of her feathers up against the fence, right where the bobcat had been. It was obvious he had gotten hold of her from the outside which was why she flew the coop. I haven't seen the coyote again but the bobcat has been back at least twice. Now I'm noticing the hens aren't eating or drinking much. We were late to get them out this morning but before I went near, I didn't hear their usual noise telling me to get them out. When I go to the run, a couple of the chickens run right into the coop. I'm only getting 1-2 eggs a day. All that said, here are the rest of the stats, of what I have left. We did have another hen fly out recently and saw the trail of feathers... 11 hens, no rooster 7- 1.5 yos in molt, one broody 4- 1, born in January, the rest in March So thinking about the molting hens, I should only be getting about 4 eggs a day, right? That's two more than I'm getting! What about the food and water...is that because of molting too? Any thoughts on how to deter predators from circling my run? We're out in the woods and don't plan on building a fence around the property.
