    So sad. Yeah, I remember when my cat killed a gerbil by playing with it. It looked just like that. Or, a dog could do it, too. Maybe the rest found a place to hide. But, if you don't see any by tomorrow morning, I wouldn't put out much hope.

  2. Well, I am not sure what to say. All I know is it has to be a small animal, because there is not anywhere a cat or bigger could get in. I am thinking rat, squirrel, ferret, snake, and/or a tiny dog. Lets hope no more kills. [​IMG]

    Do you have any neighbors? when i was young my mom raised basinji's and the mother had a litter of pups and i remember leaving with her to the store and came back and all the pups were dead all over the yard and 2 were in the water bucket which was 3 feet off the ground and they were far 2 small to have jumped yet, come to find out the neighbors 13 tear old son was a nutjob and killed them when we left he also came in the yard and stole chicks and peeped on my teenage cousins in the same 3 weeks boy did he get it when my granddad got ahold of him

    I was thinking the same thing about kids last night. I've even heard stories on BYC about kids coming into someone's yard or coop and stomping on ducklings or chicks. I hope that's not the case.

    I hope you find the other two.
