We had an owl go after our chickens one night. We heard commotion and rushed outside to see a chicken off the roost, screaming for dear life and running like her head was on fire and her a** was catchin', feathers everywhere. We looked everywhere, but saw nothing that looked predatory. The dog was looking around like, "What? I didn't see anything."
A little while later, same thing, but this time everything was off the roost except the rooster and he was in the process of jumping down. So we go trying to catch these scared hens (my wife's idea) and put them in the coop for the night. At one point I was holding the flashlight for her under an old dead apple tree, and overhead I heard a huge pair of wings start off and then go silent.
We didn't lose any chickens that night, but we lost a lot of sleep. Damn owl was apparently dive-bombing them on the roost, but just wasn't quite big enough to grab them and take back off. Thank goodness we don't have anything bigger than barn owls here. I'm waiting on one to get the gumption up to try a turkey, lol.
