    This happened a couple months ago but has been bothering me ever since. I went out one morning to find my Cornish Rock Roo dead. His head had been pulled through the fence and something had plucked all the feathers from his head and neck and had eaten his waddle and comb. There were no signs of a struggle or tracks or anything. He was a Cornish Rock on the old side so he could have died and then something got to him but I just don't know what type of predator it would have most likely been. I have not seen anything or had any problems since, I would just like an opinion. Thanks.
