I had two handsome, 2 1/2 year old roosters (one red and white polish, one blue standard cochin). I was away for the weekend and now they are just gone. I had a neighbor taking care of all the critters, and I don't think it has anything to do with him, but I'm very sad. They were the last of my original batch of chickens, and had the most personality. It had to have been something that took them during the day, as my neighbor is very diligent about closing up the coop and the coop itself is predator-proof. I don't think the neighbor probably counted heads when he closed and opened the coop each day, so I don't know when they went missing. What would take two large roosters in the middle of the day? If it's an animal predator I can live with that, as it's the risk I take by letting my chickens free-range, but I kind of wonder if some human might have killed them. I don't have close neighbors, and no one has ever complained about hearing the roosters, but we also have fishermen that use the creek edging our property, and we live on a busy road. The chicken yard is easily visible from both the creek and the road. I really hope some human isn't to blame for this. My poor boys.
