I just lost 2 of my ducks tonight. 6.00pm, broad daylight, 2 grown fox cubs got at them in the field and killed my white khaki and one of the brown ones. My daughter heard something and ran up the field in bare feet to see a fox with one of the chickens in its mouth. It dropped her and ran and luckily the chicken was unharmed apart from lost tail feathers. Hugh went out with the gun and has shot 3 foxes!! He thinks that he has got them all but I will not be letting the chickens and one duck out to free range tomorrow!! He is going to try calling the foxes again tomorrow night and see if anything else comes out. I really hate foxes and we have been so lucky recently - just shows you should never get complacent. Poor ducks and poor little one left on her own now. We are going on holiday next week but when we are back I will be buying her some new friends.
