I had a silkie hen raising 5 chicks and I came home to see her ripped apart laying on the ground by my coop. All of her chicks are completely fine though. There are no disturbances in the fence of the run and no other signs of what did it. I wanna know what could have gotten over and killed her so I can protect the rest of them from it happening again. I don't have any pictures but her entire back side was gone and the rest of her body was pretty much intact except for feathers being everywhere. All I have ever seen try and get to them was these two cats that would get over the fence and try and get into the coop when it was closed, but I don't think they could have killed my full grown silkie, right? The cats came from one side of the fence, and on the other side of the run there is the protected wetlands. (We live in the Willamette valley in oregon). I'm wondering what could live out there that could get over the fence and kill a hen but not actually carry it off. What does it sound like it is? All I can think of that live out there are nutrea, coyotes, maybe raccoons, eagles, falcons, and maybe foxes.
