I have lost two chickens (my fault for not counting when I put them in at night) in the last month or so to something that drags them off and all that is left is feathers. My neighbor saw one being dragged across the road a month or so ago and said it was headless but didn't see the perpetrator. I'm thinking weasel as I have heard people around our area say they are here...how do you get rid of them? Can you use a live trap? I don't care if it is alive or not, but I have a live trap and could try....I've read about the wooden box method but seems elaborate to me, with the leg traps, etc.. ???
