Ugh! Just lost another to a fox. Thankfully I had only let out the one coop. Hadn't had an attack for days, thought it was a hawk. This time I saw the fox running across the yard. He got my 'heart attack chicken', a light brahma who is way too fat. =( I doubt I can get them back in the coop but everyone else is locked up and I'm standing vigil now. I think I'll have to keep everyone on lockdown AND put in an electric fence. Any recommendations for something I could get right now? (like at TSC)..
Can you shoot the fox? Don't know how you feel about that or if you even own a gun. My husband bought me a ruger airhawk that is a pellet gun. I don't want to shoot anything thing, but I would if something was killing my chickens.
