Not sure if one of the chickens did not get back in the coop before the door was closed ever evening, or one of them got taken during the day when they are all all free ranging.
We have fox, raccoons, and hawks. We searched the property and found nothing. No feathers, blood, etc.
Based on not finding anything, what are the chances of it being one thing or another. I have heard of entire flocks being killed, and situations where one hen is gone every day.
The chickens are only out during daylight. They are closed up and protected in a shed at night with no possibility of predators.
Could one of the chickens be off brooding eggs somewhere? We do have outbuildings and plenty of hiding places. Can that happen at this time of the year being so cold?
Anyone got a guess or comments?
