yesterday after a meeting(I was gone 3 hours) my DH and daughter were home, I came home to find about half my flock dead or dying all around my yard!! It was awful!! Don't think my dogs would let anything in my yard without throwing a fit, so it has to be them unfortunately. The three remaing peeps I brought inside and this morning one of my favorites showed all mangled but still alive!!! The heads were bitten off of alot of them. Could a puppy and a kitten do this about the head thing? Or could a sneaky racoon have done this, It happened between 8:30 and 11:30 in the morning. I have posted on craigslist to get rid of 3 animals and did wing clipping this morning and no there is no more free-ranging for them. Getting ready to go cut a tree out of the run since they can get in and fly out. About how much is hard ware cloth? to put over the run? Well when now that there is raccoon poop in a few different spots and one was very close to the house and in a place where we pass often through out the day and evening. My husband is building a back deck at the moment. Ballsy thing!
