It's not uncommon to find an egg with blood on it.

The one pecked to death is strange but bullying does occur with fowl.

Usually when a chicken is pulled through wire or bars by a predator it takes two predators because normally the chicken wouldn't have gone near the predator, but with two they'll panic and one of the killers will get it's chance.

At least you don't have to sit up all night waiting for a fox, LOL.

Run a roll of chicken wire around the bars and it "should" be problem solved.
