I came home from work today and could not find "Dot". She's a very friendly speckled sussex hen who is normally running to great the car. I have a flock of 8 of what is in my signature line. I found her up by my house, in our hedge torn apart. Whatever it was ate her head, leaving the skull and comb. Feathers were everywhere. I couldn't find bite marks on her legs. Her intenstines were in the shrubs in the mulch. What would kill a full grown hen literally in broad daylight within 2 feet of the house? I'm very upset and worried about the others. I checked all of them and they seem okay but I have a tiny birchen cochin bantam I'm terrified for. We dont have loose dogs around here either. At least in the 2 yrs since we built the house we've never seen one. Anyone have any ideas?
