    i have recently lost my one year old white orpington. I have free range chickens and it was in the middle of the day when i was outside working in the yard and i come and look at the chickens and she was just laying there with a chunk of her missing from her breast. i have had a problem with hawks before with little chickens like old english games but this was my biggest chicken.

    if anyone cows what killed this chicken please let me know.
    thanks

    Pictures of kill and tracks MIGHT give some marginally accurate responses.
