Will chickens kill and eat other chickens?! We bought three chickens, they stayed together in quarantine for a month, and they have been in the coop with my black hen for a week now. Tonight I checked on them, and the white silkie was dead! Could something have gotten in? Would the chickens do this? She was found up high, in a box, inside an enclosed dog run, near the door to the coop, and mostly eaten. What could have done this?!
