Today my three large English Orp hens and my large Orp Rooster were turned out into the yard to forage. I live in the city and have a large fenced yard. It is a very good fenced yard and they never fly and never even act like they want out of the large yard. They just browse around all day. I saw them at 1 pm and gave them scratch. I was home all day. I went out at 9 pm to shut them up. They go into the hen house every night on their own without fail about dark. I had fed my horses late this morning and so I wasnt going to feed them again until 9 pm so I waited until then to go out. I have done this many times and never a problem because the chickens go in without fail every day. When I went out to shut the door all that was in the hen house was the rooster. The hens have vanished. There is no sign of feathers or a struggle anywhere. I never heard a thing all day. Do you think a person walked in and put them in a bag and walked out with them right under my nose. I get furious thinking about this. Do you think it is possible a dog got them? I just dont think a dog or a hawk would take three of them without a sign. This is driving me insane please help. I am so mad.
