I have had a pretty good run without predators until just about a week ago. First, my favorite black silkie hen, Beauty went missing (she was so sweet and a good layer too). I figured, since there was no trace that it was a hawk or owl. Then a couple of nights later, a young black Ameracauna roo was taken (I found him decapitated with some meat and innard missing), and then a couple of nights after that, another Silkie hen just dissapeared. I discovered that something was burrowing under my coop which is a very small 3" space. Today, I found my Great Pyrenese digging under the coop and managed to find the feet and wings of my deceased birds. In addition, something is eating my ducks' eggs right before I get out there to milk my goats. I assume it is the same predator, but I am baffled as to what it could be. It completely leaves the larger poultry alone (Peking ducks, turkeys and non-banty hens), so I assume it's something on the small side and something that burrows. I am thinking a skunk or rat, but could a rat take a banty out? What should I do to eliminate this pesky predator? I have gone almost a full year without anyone getting eaten and now in one week, I have lost 3 birds. Since the space under the coop is so small I was thinking of leaving some poison under there since nothing on my farm can fit.
