We live in central NY and came home today to find our 5 hens hiding in the coop, and one dead outside the run in the open fenced off area we allow them to roam in. It happened during 10-5pm and the bird had been mauled with the chest torn open and intestines out, feathers spread everywhere and the head intact. The water jug in the run was knocked over. My daughters are devastated. We found an area on the fence that had been pushed open leaving a gap. We are going to repair the fence but will now be locking them in the run which makes them crabby. We were discussing setting a trap to see if we catch anything. We are in a rural area and have foxes, coyotes, etc. but incorrectly thought they would do ok during the day fenced in. Any ideas what it could have been?
