Predators

Something chewed it's way into the henhouse and bit the heads of all the birds just leaving the bodies. Any ideas please?

    hi
    it depends what country you are in
    in uk the most likely culpret is a weasel - the chickens are too big for them to carry away so they only take the most nutritious part - the brain
     mink if they are in your area too
     odd hens could point to rats or foxes
     in usa id suggest a raccoon
     hope you can find a way to keep them away from any other chooks you have

    Sorry to hear about your losses.

    I agree with Kath, and would add stoat and polecat to the list of suspects.
