I was one rooster short tonight at tuck in. I looked everywhere on the 2 acres for him, but no sign of him. No feathers, no carnage, no rooster. No sign of him high or low. They were there an hour before because I had just brought water out and all 3 roos were present. None of the rest of the flock of 25 were missing or injured. One was wandering about outside of the coop despite an open pop door (as if she was unsure if she should go in), the rest were already on the roosts when I got out there. Does this sound like an aerial attack? We have numerous hawks and owls around here (in addition to the four legged pests: fox, fisher, mink, possum, raccoon, coyote, bear, etc). I would have thought that a mammal would have taken more than 1 bird and would leave a trace, I would also have expected my dog to go crazy if there was something on the property for any period of time (he is pretty alert about that sort of thing). Could he have wandered off and not gotten back to the coop in time and is roosting somewhere? I know they get a little odd after dark. I will look again in the morning, but there won't be any tracks available because the ground is frozen and without snow. I did find some unusual scat in the side yard (I am pretty sure it is fox). I have seen several fox over the past few months. Would it take just the one bird?
