Today, when I checked the coup to see if there were chickens in there. There were only my rooster who normally sleep in there, and my two small hen. All in the highest corner perch. Which is strange for them. My 4 chickens a rooster and 3 hens. They weren't in the three animal coups. Not on there out door perches where some sleep for what ever reason. Those perches were actually broken. My three hens and rooster had just up and vanished. No feathers, no struggle, but they the living ones were acting strange. I had chickens vanished as chicks and not come back. Any ideas of where or what could of taken them.

Any update on this situation??
Yeah sorry I've been super busy trying to up my grade. 馃槄
Glad you're not mad at me but you needed a little kick. Some of us do want to know what is going on.

Isn't your run open on top? Fox can climb like nobody's business. Closing that area up won't stop one from getting in over the top. With all the damage I still think it was humans that helped themselves to some free birds.
Well we never seen a fox climb are fence and it's like a really really big pen we can't exactly close it plus they share the pen with the goats. Also the fox doesn't usually climb it goes under or through here
Fox can climb trees. Do a Google search on the subject. You'll be shocked at how well they climb.

Did your hard work get your grade up? I sure hope it did.

Yeah we did although my goat keeps ruining the repairs. Welp we just will have to keep fixing it you know.
Goats! Why didn't I think of the goats doing the damage? I've had goats, I know what they can get into. I wonder if your goats will protect the chickens from the fox.

Lies. They most definitely will not. I told my dad we need something to sound the alarm like gunies or something.
Guineas can only work if they're allowed to free range during the day and are trained to go up at night.

They will, as a flock, go after interlopers. They just have to see it.
