Something had gotten two of my hens in the last week or so, so i decided to start locking my flock up at night. They are out in a large (1/2 acre) fenced area during the day. The other two hens were just *gone*..I saw a few feathers in the field in the morning. Last night I locked them up and set a live trap with catfood. This has always worked before, whether it be possum or coon or cat, so, i figured it had to be one of the "usual suspects"... I set the baited trap righ in front of the door to the closed-up and locked chicken house. This morning, I went to let them out..the trap was sprung, nothing in it, and i had 2 dead chickens, partially eaten, head and feet and most of the bodies left.. Now, the wiring on the top door and window is 2 inches wide by 4 inches long (roughly).. Whatever it was had to be small enough to get through a 2 inch rectangle.. I am at a loss...A racoon or possum or cat of any size (that was capable of carrying the other hens off, as there were no bones or carcass left) wouldn't be able to get through a hole that small...and, I'm sure it isn't a bird of some type, again, the hole is too small.. I'm thinking weasle..but, having chickens for almost 10 years and never having any problem except the occasioanl coon or possum...Do you guys have ANY idea?? And, are there even weasles in Middle TN??? Thanks for any help!
