Hi- I am so disappointed, I had to share this with someone. My husband and I went out of town for a week and I had my friend watching my chickens. I had 4 adults and 6 chicks. One of the adults was a broody mama that hatched all the chicks and was a wonderful mom to them. I have never had a predator problem before and never expected this. She left the door to the run open somewhere in the days I was gone. I got home yesterday and mama bird and five of the babies are gone. There are no feathers or anything to identify the predator (I read the sticky). I am in North Georgia, and know we have racoons and opossum. Although, if they were the culprit I would think that there would be feathers. I have a 6 foot wooden fence around the yard also. Luckily one of the hens has taken the baby in, well somewhat. Now all three are not roosting in the coop, I find them huddled in a corner near the house- its the strangest thing. Baby tucked in under them. Do you think they are not roosting because of a traumatic event that happened in the coop, or because the baby cant get up into the coop yet (there is a pretty steep ramp up). I have been taking them and putting them in the coop. The coop is predator safe (well if the door is closed). Should I make them stay in there for a few days without free ranging. They are not laying eggs in there or anything.
