Yesterday I lost my ducks, pekin & a swedish blue mix. My favorite chicken a buff orpington and this morning I realized one of my redstars seemed in shock and has a large patch of feathers ripped out of her neck. I live in a densely wooded area near a saltwater creek. The birds have a large fenced pen with a coop in the middle. bird netting over head and lines running even higher on the fence posts to deter jumping.Lots of running palmettos and trees to hide under. Yesterday what I believe was a bobcat jumped over broke the ropes and took the birds out and into the dense underbrush. I found my big pekin with her neck broken & stashed under a palmetto. I found the male duck further in the woods with his breast eaten out. I was unable to find the chicken last night but found a pile of feathers near my house which hadnt been there earlier. then the rest of her remains I found in the woods this morning which was just feathers, a little bone a foot & broken egg. i have a red that jumped out of the pen & was running the property during the attack. Maybe my buff escaped too only to be caught a few hours later? i buried the ducks & spent the sunrise this morning hunting. I found what looked like a domestic cat skull & a series of burrows & tunnels. near an oak hammock. Is it normal for bobcats to take multiple kills at once? Could it have cubs? The attack happened around 12 in the afternoon and it only had about an hour to do it. what should i do for my redstar? She loved the ducks & roosted on the ground with them most nights. She doesnt appear injured just the missing feathers. Shes just been sitting on the ground very lethargic closing her eyes. I am considering buying a coyote trap does anyone have experience with this working? Any help is appreciated!!!
