We lost 2 birds last night/this morning plus 8 chicks. These 2 likely came out of the coop early in the morning before I got out there so they were exposed to predators(everyone else was still in the run unhurt and we will be fixing that gap today) bird #1 Teenage SLW completely eaten except for a string of intestines and feathers about 20 feet from the coop bird #2 Adult production red killed, only the head and neck missing, the body was completely untouched So that leads me to think dog or coyote. We had nearly our entire flock taken down by a similar situation 1.5 months ago - some eaten, some killed, some missing Here is the confusing part - the chicks! Chicks - enclosed in a dog run with a covered roof, bottom half is further protected with chicken wire so that babies can't get in and out. No signs of digging under the fence, or the fence being damaged in anyway. Just a momma hen calling to her babies to come eat and no one is coming. There are older chicks (about a month old) in this enclosure who are all still fine. Most likely the smaller chicks were outside and the older ones safe inside their little coop. What eats a chicken on site, kills and eats a head yet can get tiny chicks out of a protected run without a trace?
