Hi all, I found a dead pullet this morning. She had been dragged out of the coop and into the run (through the 1 foot-square door that I forgot to close). Her head and neck was missing and most of her insides were eaten out. I'm not too upset, after reading other stories on BYC I think I'm lucky that it was only one of my 37 young girls and not a dozen, or not one of my layers. But I read that coons would drag them off, and that possums kill them all and eat their favorite bits, so since this was just one that was dragged just a few feet away and only the head, neck, and organs were gone, I wonder what my predator could be. If it were a skunk, would I be able to smell that it had been in there? What does this sound like to you more-experienced chicken owners? Also, I found her this morning around 9:00am and when I picked up what was left of her, she was cold but not stiff. With all her insides missing, would that keep her body from going stiff? I'm trying to figure out if she was killed deep in the night or perhaps early morning before I found her. I've got them locked up tight tonight with live traps set and my .22 loaded and waiting for the morning, so hopefully we'll find out by morning. But knowing whether its a coon or a possum would help me choose the best bait. Thanks!
