    [​IMG] I went to the chicken yard this evening and found a chicken head. No feathers, no digging, no blood anywhere.

    My pen is surrounded by a 4' no climb horse fence and then some rope going about 2 feet up. I had the donkeys in a fence surrounding them until last week and now this. I think there are 2 others missing.

    Any ideas would be helpful.

    I closed the house up last night, but this morning the chickens were out. Something slid the door over and got a rooster.[​IMG] It then tried to pull the rooster out under the people door not the chicken door. What could this be. Today I will redo the chicken door and the people door. I will try to set up the camera to see what is in the chicken yard tonight. Any n]other ideas?

    It sounds like a weasel or a varmint in that family. The exact same thing has happened to me (bird being or trying to be pulled away).
