    Hey,guys,I need some help. We had a chicken that started laying on eggs outside the chicken cube. She nested on a different place in one of the barns and something snatched her in the night. We looked for the body but couldn't find it anywhere untill I found it tonight like 2 feet from where she was taken from,even tho we checked there earlier and it wasn't there before. Does anyone know what animal could've done that? The picture shows the remains.

  2. Have any dogs? Anyone around you have dogs? Looks just like what a neighbor's dog did to my duck.
    I had a skunk take a duck too, but it carried it very far before stopping to eat.

    Only her legs and some bones are left from the body.
