What predator is big enough to carry off an 18 week old BBW tom? I think these guys are weighing well over 25 pounds now. I had 8, now I have 7. There is no sign of a feather pile, carcass, etc, no injuries on the other birds. I have never seen stray dogs around, although we do have raccoons in the barn and I hear coyotes at night. The disappearance took place (I think) during the day, as all were accounted for Friday night at bedtime, then one was missing by Saturday night at bedtime. They get shut up in the coop at night, whether they like it or not. I can't think what might have gotten him in daylight (maybe a human?) without leaving any trace of a struggle.
