Friday I had somewhere to go so hubby shut the chickens for me. When I went to let them out Saturday morning I counted and one was missing, Ethel. Couldn't find her anywhere and finally yesterday I found a pile of feathers near the edge of our property. None of the chickens seemed freaked out or anything! The feathers had no blood on them and no blood trail. I walked around in the woods and surrounding areas and never found a trace of anything. We live out in the country and have seen different animals like coyotes and foxes, hawks, racoons, possums, etc. but in the 4 years of having chickens only one hawk attack and the chicken was not killed or hurt since we were in the yard when it happened. I have not seen any stray dogs and walked around the neighborhood yesterday and didn't notice any dogs out. I sure don't want this to happen again so any ideas would be much appreciated.
