Hi Nina. Do you live out in the country? If you don't mind telling me, what state do you live in? It will help me to know what types of predators might be in your area. Any other homes nearby? Did you see any indication of any wounds anywhere on their bodies? Did the heads appear to be chewed off, (sort of ragged) or bitten off in a mostly clean separation? Where they found near your other chickens or maybe off somewhere, separated from the flock? Thanks, Patricia
