    Owls eat there prey whole. They can't swallow a whole chicken so they get the best part, chicken brains. I have seen them land on the cage then as the chicken tries to get out by poking it's head threw the wire BINGO! Off with yer head.
    When all else fails..... call in an Airstrike

    So sorry to hear about your girls. I am a new chicken owner, and posts like this do make me worry about my girls some. My run is fully secure with hardware cloth so I hope I never run into any problems.
    Anyhow, I hope you catch whatever it is and put an end to it!

    You want to help hunting and the right to bear arms continue for generations? Take someone new and introduce them to the outdoor lifestyle.

    I've only ever had problems with raccoons, except for the one hawk that tried to fly away with one of my chickens but couldn't lift it; killed it and pecked the brains out instead. But anyway, the raccoons would eat the whole head, but also the breast meat and heart and leave me the rest of the carcus.

    if the pen is in closed with a top most likely a coon.
    Thats a good point, my chicken pen is closed from the top so it cant be a owl or a hawk.

    Keep your cage out there, but put some weight on it so the critters can't flip it again.

    Ok, so based on all the replies, ANYTHING could be killing your chickens.

    It could be...a psycho chicken!

    The clucking is coming from INSIDE THE HEN HOUSE!!!
