Well we've lost two chickens in the past few days as the tread title says, First one was our rooster. Our three and a half year old saw the rooster being chased by a "big black dog". I really hope its not somebodies dog... or a bear. My money is on a dark colored coyote or a wild dog. In which case, they came right to our front door and killed it. I would have expected a dog to take out more than one bird at a time. Their were a few spots with a large group of feathers for each attack and a light trail of feathers in between the groups. I found one wing left behind. The attacks seem to be happening between Noon and 6pm, around 3pm at best guess which seems odd for a coyote, as well as an attack at the front door. We have 2 large dogs that leave a ton of scent around as well. So it seems really odd. Whatever it is attacking seems really aggressive. Whatever it is takes one route out the back of our property but the trail stops cold on our property. My plan for tomorrow is to run over-watch and see if I can spot anything and put it down. An animal taking out my chickens is reason enough to terminate it but I'm afraid for my 3 1/2 year old going outside.
