Gray Fox! - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Like eric2016 said. This time of year they lose their winter coat. Foxes are pretty small it's just the fur that makes them look bigger. Gray foxes aren't as susceptible to mange as reds and coyotes. Foxes will come all hours of the day when hunting chickens in your yard.

Well didn't get the Fox this weekend, so chickens are still penned up. My neighbor up the road lost 30 chickens last Wednesday, some was taken and some was left. The people that live next to them lost about 6 chickens 2week's ago all was taken . And 3 chickens are gone from my husband's grandparents we found one with a bite in its back. We all live with in a mile from each other. We are all thinking it may be the same Fox I seen. What do y'all think? Would one Fox kill that many chickens. Other people around us have chickens but don't know if they are missing any yet.

Kit rearing and people making it so easy for them sure, they'll stockpile up on meat. Wouldn't blame every bird on one fox though. There are a lot of animals that kill chickens. Your area seems prime pickings so imagine there is a bit of everything taking the birds.

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.

What about your neighbor that feeds the fox, did she loose any chickens?

No she hasn't lost any chickens but they have them in a pen. Every one that has lost chickens let them free ranges or don't have tops on there runs. I have a top and stoped letting them out.
