I found my sweet rooster, Lamp (named by a 5yr old), dead from possibly a broken neck. He was stiff so it was really hard to evaluate him, other than his feathers all seem to be there and he was still not all the way cold. I have had the windows open all day and didn't hear a peep from him. The only reason I went to check was because my other roo was heading in from the backyard (he sleeps in a dog house out front instead of the coop with the flock) and started sounding the emergency alarm. I go out and he's standing next to him kicking up quite a fit. What would have gotten my chicken in broad daylight? The only "predator" that could have come into the yard without setting off all the roos would have been human, I suspect. We've had a few hawks, but I can't imagine they'd go after such a big bird when I have a dozen little guys running around. Any thoughts before I go, guns blazing, to the neighbors? Anyone with similar experience?
