We found one of our 3 month old pullets dead this morning.
Her head was off, and whatever did it at the organs but not the meat.
It only killed the one.
None of the other pullets, hens, or ducks were harmed.
They are free-range in a fenced area with 2 goats, 1 pot belly pig, and our Great Pyrenees.
This was the first time anything ever slipped past her, so I'm thinking that whatever did it was small-ish and very stealthy.
We have access to a live trap.
What kills chickens like this so we know what to watch for and what to bait the trap with?
