Monday I came home from work and immediately went to check on my babies. I checked under the coop and saw a bloody carcass. I was devastated. The girls were pecking at it. I pulled it out and it was my banty "Pirate". I was heartbroken. I thought maybe my girls had killed her. Upon further investigation (this website), I have found that she was killed. When I came upon Pirate she had the bottom beak, her neck bone only, all of her chest feathers, but from the top her internal cavity was cleaned out. Yesterday, my son was sick so I stayed home with him and checked on my girls often. I found a hawk under my coop eating some of the little bit of Pirate that was left. I scared the POS off and checked on them regularly throughout the day. Today, I got home from school and my husband noticed a patch of feathers. I immediately started hunting and I found my banty rooster "Millie" dead. His head was present about 1 foot away from the body. His one eye had been completely removed. His body was belly side up and all of the feathers were gone from his belly. It looked like the predator had pecked around a bit and then left. Any ideas what this is? I am so sad and I hate to lock my girls up in the coop tomorrow, it is supposed to be great outside, but I think I have to. HELP me. I cannot handle losing anymore of my babies.
