Hi all, So my husband was nice enough to let me sleep in this morning. He woke me up to ask me "How many chickens do you have?" I told him 10 he then said "Well I can only count 9 and there is a lot of feathers in the yard." I went out to help him look my15 week BR Camella was missing. indeed there were lots of feathers. Some in the pen (the pen door was open for them to freerange) and some in the yard along with a few spots of blood. I was thinking maybe racoon but there were no feathers in the coop. My hubby said the chickens whrere making a fuss early this morning. I then thought maybe fox or coyote then my hubby saw feathers at the base of the big alder tree looked up. There was Camella what was left. Can't see much just a bunch of feathers however you can see one leg hanging down completely stripped of meat. So now I am thinking hawk. Is there any suggestions on how to keep the hens safe from hawk attack. I have read that once a hawk finds a yummy flock they stick around. Thanks for reading.
