    I'm so sorry! That sounds awful.

    I had a puppy when I was a kid that got hit by a car while I was visiting my Dad. I had to wait until he had woken up, had his coffee, showered, etc etc before he would take me the 45 mins back home. It was awful, but at least it wasn't DAYS.

    Sounds like racoons to me. An 'hot' (electric) wire around the coop will avoid future disasters. Sorry about your birds.
