Went out in the morning to check the chickens and found one of the young chickens dead. Head laying in pile of feathers. Middle of run. Found some entrails and feathers on top of pile of wood in fire pit. No body to be found. Other chickens don't seem phased. Usually locked up at night but last night got home late. My 2 dogs seemed excited really early this morning; just about/before dawn. Did not see any digging into pen. There is netting over half of run but not under the pine tree. 6' fence on 2 sides that lead into neighbors fenced in yards. Other 2 sides are 5' chicken wire which I know isn't the best. I've narrowed my guesses to owl, raccoon maybe but doubtful fox or possum. There are roaming cats but I don't think it was them, most of them are too fat to climb a fence. Too early for hawk? Any guesses? Is it wrong of me not to be to upset since it was my not very pretty or nice Cornish game hen? It better not get my Cochins or Jersey giant!
