    So one of my favorite hens was killed yesterday afternoon its head was missing but the beak,part of the skull,and comb was still there the neck was stripped bare and part of the upper chest was eaten could my rooster have done this becuse he has been a bit agrresive and attacking another hen and she won't even leave the coop and it looked like one of his feathers was close to the attack or could it have been someone else

    No, your rooster would not eat your poor hen.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss.

    This sounds like a predator of some kind. :(
