    I was missing a bird today and i found where a fight had taken place with feathers around and followed them to underneath a shed where i found the bird. skinned and missing its head and meat but organs all still in there

    That is a very unlucky Silkie you've got there. I think it could have been a coon or a possum

    actually it was a cochin until it got all chewed up, kinda hard to tell from the pics though [​IMG]
    we have more cats than anything around here, but i was thinking coons. i have only trapped one possum so far

    Raccoon. I HATE Raccoons. If I were you I would trap it and kill it.

    A coon. An owl also could have done it if the bird wasn't in a coop. So sorry for yo're loss [​IMG]

    thank you, but it was partly my fault because i should have made sure they were all up in the coop when i closed it up. i found it under some trees/brush where it was killed so i'm less likely to think owl
