Wednesday night/Thanksgiving morning predators--the 2-legged variety--complete with bolt cutters emptied all of my runs except the one visible from the house. They cut the padlocks off the coops and walked off with every RIR and most of the Buff Rocks. The RIR flock was descended from my grandfather's flock established in 1942. Now there is not a single one of them left. The deputy who took the report said they are probably already in someone's freezer. I am heartbroken.
