A Chicken Problem

Well, not a problem with the chickens themselves, but something eating the chickens... As some of you know, we lost 9 of our 10 baby chicks when we were out of town a couple of weeks ago. (Our remaining "miracle" chick now has to live by herself until she's old enough to be integrated into the flock. Isabella named her "K-K" after what Mommy's name starts with!) Now, the animal struck again two nights ago and got one of our biggest hens out of the coop. Mark found her the next morning... :( Mark believes it's a raccoon, and now he must work extra hard to keep it away, since it seems to like chicken. We're beginning to get a bit bummed that we're all of a sudden losing so many chickens after no problems for so long...
