I have a chicken coup within a fenced in yard where ny dog is free to roam. I let the chickens out for only the second time ever this afternoon and heard a commotion and one chicken is gone. Just like that. I can't imagine a coyote could have gotten in and out that fast I mean I was right in the kitchen ten feet from them when this happened. I would have seen him running away with her. The only thing I can think of is a Hawk but I thought they could not carry a chicken away, that they would kill it on the ground. This was not the case either - she just disapeared in an instant. could she be hiding somewhere? It's getting dark and the others are stunned and looking for her.
