    A couple days ago somthing killed 3 of my chickens and all the chickens were killed the same way, there heads were cut off and the body wasnt eaten. What kind of animal would do this. I put a medium size cage trap out and the trap was flipped over so it cant be a small animal.

    I have heard of Raccoons, Owls and Hawks doing that.

    coon grabs em by the head they peck at the ground with there paw to simulate a bird feeding and when the bird comes ove rthey grab them thru the fence could be a mink but sounds like a coon to me
    how big is the cage you put out 10x10 or bigger is good for coon any smaller is to small

    I had a couple of ducks that were killed the same way. It was a large wood RAT. He was back the next night looking for something to eat and he got some poison pellets. That's how I know it was the rat. Found him dead on top of the duck house.
