Today, I awoke to find a hen, Ava, and our rooster, Chippy, dead in the run. Ava was obviously attacked by a predator, where as Chippy just seem deceased. A vet is doing a necropsy on the both of them tomorrow. They suspect it may be the work of a fox. We have all been absolutely devastated and distraught by this. If you see my previous post, I was just a foster parent for these chickens. We are considering permanently homing one of them, Buttercup. If we were to be a permanent home for Buttercup, how could we protect her against foxes and other ground predators? We would like to build a reinforced coop/run. All help is appreciated. Thank you.
