    I'm hoping someone can help me because I'm not sure what to do. Last night something got into my coop and killed 10 of my birds. Most of them were decapitated and just left there except one that was dragged behind a box. I checked the coop and found no large holes so I think its something small like a weasel. I moved my surviving birds to another coop and set a trap. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be and how to stop it.

    mink/weasel/rat are best guesses, trapping and removing it (or them) and making sure your coop is better secure to prevent it. Good luck.
