    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?!

    Oh my gosh never mind... I found a ##$%#@ raccoon inside hiding out. Time to reinforce. It got away, climbed up the fence and out a hole in the roof awning area.

    I was worried b/c the box she was in was my black hens and she started laying. Also, she went broody for a while and stopped laying, she is no longer broody but we have not been getting eggs. I wonder if that 流口水的狗娘養的笨兒子 has been eating my eggs.
