How are we supposed to know? We don't even know where you live so we have an idea of predators in your area.
You could move them into an enclosed barn. You could have a cage with a top like SR suggested. there are lots of options instead of having sitting ducks. Oh the ducks are dead so they cant sit.

Cats will often eat the organs and leave the rest. Weasels too, but they usually eat the heads.
If you've seen a bobcat, I would say that's probably your culprit.
If you have a barn or copp, I would lock the birds in there at night.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
