    Dog under porch revealed this. Had chickens for 10 years. only freerange when home with 3 dogs. Never had skunks or racoons yet. Broad daylight. Any ideas? Nothing amiss with the Roster Chickens or turkey hens or tom..

    I have been trying to post pics for the last hour. I have a chicken that the dog had under the front deck (he is not a killer). No head. Body and feather in tact. No legs or rear end and most of the guts gone. I will still try to post pics. I have never had raccoons or skunks for over 10 years. I have 3 dogs that are good at chasing off. The only real predetors I have had have been miss-informed coyotes and some bears that are only after my fruit trees. Only one year did I have losses from a bobcat which we eventually SSS'd.
