    Today I got home, I just knew something was wrong.. I went and checked on the chickens.. and my brand new bantam I haven't even had for a full day was missing.. he also took one of my guineas. No feathers were left anywhere, I checked the whole property( i had a flashlight) but no signs of feathers, or anything.. just leaves all over the coop.
