I went down to the coop this evening to close up and there was a GLW pullet dead beneath the nest boxes. Her head was gone and one wing barely hanging on and her heart and most of her insides were eaten but the legs and thighs and pretty much everything else was still there. None of the other chickens were touched My first thought is a weasel but I am not sure if they are local around here. I walked the perimeter of the run and coop and saw no signs of digging or anything but it is possible for something small to climb the fence and slip through the deer neeting. There are quite a predators that know of my chickens but none of the have these traits. at least 4 different foxes: Only ever attacked when chooks were free ranging. Left a pile of feathers no body or carcuss. Ate the chicken at the same corner of the field. 2 different skunks (one young one older): Caught in traps many times. Has gotten into coop and eaten eggs but has never touch a chicken. 1 (HUGE) black snake: Eats eggs but I haven't seen him in a long time. raccoons: Pile of feathes. Trail of feathers leading into the woods. Pile of feathers underneath a tree. opposumes(sp): caught in traps but has never attacked chickens that I know of. Anybody have any idea what attacked the pullet could be? I've put her carcuss in the trap so we may know by morning.
