Our big guy has lived with our chickens and ducks for 5+ years. He even allowed an orphan chick to bond to him, following him around, sleeping and riding on his head even while he walked around or ate. But mostly he completely ignores them as the share the yard.
The past couple weeks he has brought into the house the remains of two hollowed out ducks and one chicken.
Is it possible he regressed into a killer or is he bringing in their remains after a critter got them? We live on the edge of the wilderness so culprits could include: badgers, skunks, bobcats, raccoons, cougars, country dogs, etc.
