Lost half my flock this morning to a fox (I actually saw him running across my backyard- no doubt whatsoever this guy got my chickens). Nothing but feathers remained. However- there was one bird still on the ground- nothing but the head was gone. I suspect the headless chicken was killed by a goshawk that we've seen hanging around and not the fox. Foxes take the whole bird away- bird predators leave the carcass. So, making the best of a bad situation, I boiled up water and plucked my remaining chicken (since it was still warm i figured it had only just happened and should still be OK to eat). Once the feathers were off I saw claw or bite marks on the back. The skin has been punctured. What do you veteran chicken folks think? Should I boil it up for soup?Or just bury it in the garden? Or toss it into the woods for the fox to haul away?
