Well, I've been lurking on here for awhile & learned alot. I finally decided to register this morning so I could vent about what happened last night. We ordered 27 beautiful baby chicks from Hoovers Hatchery at the end of March. We lost one the first night & sold 13 more after a few weeks. We have been raising the other 13 since then. They just turned 11 weeks old this week and were getting so big & pretty. Well, last night something got through their run & into the coop & got 7 of them. I have a drainage ditch that is about 25 feet behind the run & I found 2 of them in it with just their heads missing. There was no other damage to them. I can't find any sign of the others. The other 6 were too scared to even get off the roost when I went out this morning. Their coop was built inside one corner of my barn with just a small square hole cut in the side for them to enter their run outside. I have a 60 watt light on in the barn at night. I'm thinking it had to be either a coon or possum, any ideas??
