What is strong enough to break a duck's bill, then just open up her bottom to eat? No other marks! Happened at night or early morning.
They are usually in the coop at night but refuse to go in sometimes.
We've lost other ducks and chickens to hawks, eagles, etc.
Any ideas?

I've had animals eat my chickens' heads off before. They say foxes do that, but generally we've only seen racoons around. Racoons are clever little things, and can do many different things with their hands, so maybe a racoon? What do you mean by open up their bottom? Did their butt look eaten off? Or are you talking about the beak still?

It would be helpful if you had your location under your avatar picture. It really does make a difference!

Simple to do and really helps people help you. Just go to the top right where your "BYC name" is and click. A drop-down menu will take you to “Account Details”. If you put your location there it will always be under your picture.
