we just had something kill two birds, a few weeks ago we had something getting into the coop, and killed 3 young birds, each bird had a single neat bite wound on the back of the neck where the spine and skull meet, and few feathers pulled, the only wounds,it was also stealing eggs, this all stopped a few days after it started, when one of our best hunters, our cat Karina, cought and killed a RAT, almost 2 feet long from head to tail. the dogs never made a peep, usually atleast Sidney, our pit mix raising holy hell when a strange dog, or fox comes too close, but he made no sound, the geese were going off, but thats normal all hours of the day. every bird was accounted for at around 6ish, I found the birds about an hour ago. the kills are too clean for dog,too big for a cat. Becca suggested a fox, but a fox out in daylight?? I got some pics, maybe y'all can tell me what it is. I think this is the killsight, right next to the pen the skin on the neck was ripped away both of the cuckko's legs were broken, and one wing broken in half. red hens feathers, and chunks of skin the only wound on the red hen was this hole, and a broken neck so, what was this killer?? no babies were bothered this time, and no eggs stolen, I'm afraid for the kittens, and adult cats now, if something can do this in the day to a chicken, what could it do to a kitten.
