    I realize it is a long shot, but any ideas as to what would eat the *** end out of a chicken and leave the rest. This is the second one this week after having them free range for over a year with no issues. I'm kinda getting ******.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    I have no idea, hopefully someone else may have an idea.
    There are quite a few knowledgeable folks on the Predator and Pest Forum that may know more about which critter leaves this kind of "signature".
    You may also want to post there as well.
