i came home the other day and some of the yard chickens were dead laying everywhere and one was even laying in the dog pen in which i have a blood hound , my first thought was a dog. then i came home again and i have a ground pen that had been mashed flat and i found the rooster dead but no sign of the hen. then today i came home to find one rooster with his head gone and in another pen i had a hen missing. there were a big pile of feathers but no bird. what really confuses me about the hen missing was the pen was in the same spot and had not been damaged lke something might have been trying to get into it. what ever it is, is not scared of my bloodhound cause his pen is only about 15 feet from my chickens. the 3rd attack was done in the middle of the day also. i sat in my truck later tonight and about 10:30 there was a huge armodillo came out of the woods and walked right next to the dog pen. is it possible that it could be a armodillo doing this and if not what could be?
