So a few weeks ago we had something get into the barn and killed 3 of my silkies, one was completely missing, no feathers or anything to be found. I put my remaining hen in with my large breed hens. We thought it was a feral cat bc we did see a huge orange cat running out of the barn. We never saw the cat again. All was well for about a week, then the other day we went to feed the birds and I had 11 dead birds! Once again one missing. I am down to 4 hens. It hasn't messed with my turkeys, we have 2 barn cats but they are scared of the chickens, so we're thinking mink since the coop is like Fort Knox, there is just one tiny place at te corner of the coop door that was pulled out. You actually have to step into our coop, like 2 ft to get in the door. So we set a trap using a dead chicken, nothing last night, my main concern is that it will go back to my live birds before the dead one. Plus also it was a week in between attacks, so should I just leave the trap set and hope for the best? Or does anyone have other ideas?
