I found one of my chickens dead. I found her was underneath my back steps where she sometimes laid eggs. It was during the day and whatever killed her had eaten her head/ neck all the way down to her chest leaving it attached to the body just leaving bone and skull. Then ripped feathers off of the chest but did not eat the chest. I have a fenced in backyard so dogs are ruled out. But being durig the day and being under my small steps leaves me a little confused? Would a possum or racoon come out in daytime hours?? I don't think a bird of prey would do this?
