I have lost chicks before, in fact this has been the worst year on our farm to date, but I have never had ten three week old peeps taken from a brooder coop with nine other six week chicks left unscathed. No feathers, no blood, no struggle, no sign that anything was disturbed. The entire coop is buttoned up tight. Only corner that could be questionable is still blocked off with 1" wire and plywood. A snake could enter at this corner, but no way could a snake big enough to eat ten whole peeps be able to exit through 1" wire. I'm baffled! Any ideas out there? Could a snake really eat ten peeps in one night?
