I saw a bird up in the trees cleaning itself but it was too far away to get a good look or tell its size. The chickens neck was stripped to the bone. Does anyone know what type of bird (or animal) does this? The chicken looked fine otherwise and was pretty heavy but not bleeding though it's 30 degrees out. I live in a rural area and we have bobcats, coyotes, raccoons and the like so not sure what got is but it was at @ 2:00 in the afternoon. I just noticed that Speck was the one and she is my avatar, sniff.
