lost my entire larger colony last night to what i believe was rats. i know when coons get em. they are pulled through "plucked" the wire. these were all half IF HALF chewed at the necks and rears. i have ONE HEN left and she has 2 wounds both on her back i think the critter grabbed her and bit but she got away and he or they were fine with chewing on the others they destroyed. i never understand why a predator must kill multiples before even eating hardly ANY of the first. this will not be taken lightly as these birds were JUST coming into lay. yesterday was day 5 on the eggs for them... traps will be placed accordingly...live traps as well as large rat traps will be placed along the perimeter of the coops/colony pens. I KNOW they will be back... thatll be the end of them... i'v got some pen tweaking to do as well. i thought id perfected them from all predators....i NEVER expected this one.
