If that fence isn't at least 6 inches underground get that fixed! Also, I'm not trying to be mean hear but, you have no covering over your run!!! What most definitely happened was a hawk came down, scooped up a chicken/pullet and brought it to all his/her hawk babies. I'm so very sorry for your loss but everything in nature needs to eat!


Sorry again,

Thanks
We have never seen hawks in the neighborhood so we were hoping that the run would be ok not to be covered and just keep the coop covered. Looks like we have leaned the hard way

Yeah just this afternoon I saw a hawk circling above our covered chicken coop even though nobody in our neighborhood had ever seen a hawk too. They come to where the food is even in a city! (I don't live in a city but my friend does and his neighbor had a rabbit killed by a hawk)

Yay!!! So happy you found her! I thought she definitely was scooped up by a hawk but I was wrong! You should still cover your coop and run with poultry wire (My personal recommendation) or some other kind of hawk proof covering.
