    We are missing a RIR hen. I noticed little piles of brown feathers here and there leading into the woods. What animal do you think did this? Fox, dog, etc. We've never had this issue before, so I'm just curious.

    If during the day, possibly a fox. From what you describe it leads me to think in this direction. Worst news for you is that it is likely to return for more chickens. You need to secure your facility as needed.
