    This is the most pathetic fox I have seen since I was a young girl. He won't be swiping any more eggs or poultry as his career as a chicken yard raider ended yesterday.

    crossedwires- I don't have a dog anymore, as he passed away a few months ago, but Thanks for the advice!

    This fox has been grabbing my poultry for quite a while and I've lost 2 ducks, and my best Cochin roo, Phil. 1 hen was bitten and she's currently in isolation. I'm not sure if she will recover or not. The fox ate some of the eggs my broody hen was sitting on, but Broody Trudy is all right and will be reset on new eggs by early evening. I think this fox finally got weak enough he passed up chicken dinner and went for the eggs instead.
