I am baffled, two nights ago I lost almost 20 chickens. I had about 40 now I have 18 I think. I cam home at 4 am to a massacre! Chickens laying all over the yard, with just one small hole in there head or neck, I found maybe 2 or 3 without heads! I was horrified. I have spent a good bit of money to get silkies and a couple other breeds plus my beloved pets that were just as tame as anything! It was dark when it happened and a few were in the coop, I found small holes in my coop (building flaw) only about 2 inches but it had them pulled down through this small hole. I have have my chickens 3 years and have NEVER lost any to a predator til now. I live in a campground with a creek in the backyard, what could have done this I WANT TO KILL IT! I am crushed, I lost day old peeps a few month old peeps and grow birds. I noticed it comes back for the dead ones and carries them off but the first night it left them all!!!! Help! I have been looking for a trap but nothing has been open this weekend. I have all my chickens that are left locked in the garage now to afraid to put them back in the coop even though i have fixed the holes I found. I am terrified! Do you think this was a weasel? I don't know what has done this!!!
