I was complaining that my roo kept sounding the alarm for no apparant reason, and today the reason made itself very clear. I found a heap of feathers that used to be my faverolles pullet (only one missing). There were just feathers, no blood, feet, bones. I suspect this is not the work of cats, as they don't usually pull feathers like that, and do leave a mess. I also found a large, black feather just nearby, but that sort of looks like a brahma girl tail feather. What did this? Bird of prey? The yard is fenced in, stray dogs would not have gotten in, and cats are not a likely suspect. I live in Norway, by the coast - badgers and foxes are possibilities, and martens. I have seen marten tracks nearby before. I'm thinking it's not that big an animal, it would probably have chosen a bigger meal if it was. I'd like to catch this thing, unless it's an endangered species of bird, of course. The feathers have been scattered by the wind..
