I had my flock of 30 chickens and ducks out all day yesterday, and when I did my head count as they came into the coop for the night, I realized I was missing one of my two barred rock roosters. This morning I found a trail of black and white feathers going into the woods, so I know a ground predator got him. My coop is completely surrounded by electric netting, and the fence is testing between 6000-7000 volts. I have trail cameras set up to watch the coop area, and when I checked them, one had turned off somehow, so no pictures, and the other was pointing in the direction of where the trail of feathers started, but the motion sensor hadn't been triggered, so I have no idea what did it, but I suspect a fox. There was no explosion of feathers inside the fenced in area, only a couple of feathers here and there in the woods in the dense underbrush. Any suggestions on how my rooster got taken? He has never flown over the fence before, but he is certainly capable of doing it. Would a rooster fly over a fence to take on a predator? I'm nervous that the fox jumped the fence, the rooster went to defend the flock, and he grabbed him and jumped the fence with the rooster in mouth, and now he can come and get a meal whenever he wants. I have reset the cameras, and moved one to be closer to the fenceline where it borders the woods, and I spent 4 hours this morning clearing the woods back another 10 feet from the fence, so instead of a 5 ft border of yard between the fence and the woods, there is now a 15 ft border. This is my first loss since setting up the electric fence 2 months ago, and my illusion of safety has been popped!
