Hey, I know there are similar postings on this, and I have read them, but I wanted to say my particular situation so maybe I could narrow it down a bit more. I found one of my TH with the head removed this morning :-( I'm really bummed. But nothing was eaten and the head was still there. There are a few small holes along the bottom of the coop which certainly a weasel or snake couldn get through. There are vents all along the topc (it's a metal buidling 12x24ft) which we've covered with chicken wire using staples. Those look like they've been pulled at. However, if an owl, coon or possum got in that way, there would be no way it could back out b/c it's too far up with nothing to stand on to go back. I looked around but there was nothing in the coop. The coop is divided in half with wire and wall and door, with grown flock on one side with their own door outside, and the other half houses the 4 1/2 month old chicks on the other with their own door and yard. So I'm thinking weasel or snake. The question, I guess is, would it just pull the head off and not eat it or anything else? I need to know how to be proactive today and not lose anymore. I know that once a predator realizes there's a food source, they'll keep coming back. Oh, and everyone gets closed up at night. The chicks have a screen door leading out to their totally enclosed coop. The grown flock have a small wood door and they come in the day and free range the whole 10 acres. Sorry this is so long. I just thought the more info, the better advice you could give. Thanks a lot!
