1) My thought, exactly. Maybe she actually survived the fall!

2) Florida here—too! A neighbor watched as one of her chickens—which was moribund, but alive—was carried off by a Turkey Vulture to a nearby rooftop.

3) Before the Interstates came into existence in the 50s-60s, we seldom saw Turkey Vultures in Florida.

To: Does so

Thanksgiving 2012 had 10 chickens. Found we thought we could free range them.

They survived fine til early March 2013. Then the predators got our address.

Lost 5 in a week. Have to keep them coop’ed and run’ned up all day now. We give them free range for the hour sometimes before dark, when we can be present and watch the skies for them.
