I am at such a loss! We had 12 adults and 17 teenage (15 week old) chickens. Thursday I got home about 4:30 pm. I found one of my two "head roosters" dead (no marks) and two teen-chicks (also, no marks) lying dead in different parts of the yard. The other Head Rooster and all but 4 hens are GONE! I walked through the wooded acreage of our property (25 acres) and did not find them! Over 22 chickens! That is a lot of chickens to completely disappear! I am completely mystified and broken up about it! Have you ever heard of such a thing? It gets worse. I let the remaining chickens and two roosters out yesterday to crow and hopefully call some missing in, but now more have dissappeared! Only one rooster and four hens left! No more bodies. It's like they were transported to the home planet! Could they be silently hiding somewhere on my property? Will they come back? Can you give me any hope? I love my chickens and can't imagine not having any around, but what could do this? If I order more chicks this year, am I crazy? Are there any other chicken people who might help me? I just feel completely at a loss.
