Hi everyone, today I lost one of my favorite hens, Baby Blue, to what I think was a fox. My avatar pic is the one I lost, she was a Blue Cochin My chickens free range from dawn to dusk. We have a 5 ft no-climb (welded wire) fence. There was a pile of Blue's feathers on the other side of the fence, nothing else, so whatever attacked her was able to get her over the fence. No breech/holes in the fence anywhere in that area so it had to have climbed or jumped it. That part of the property backs up to woods. I brought my chicken-friendly Husky out into the area where I think Blue was first attacked. Lexi immediately picked up a scent and followed it over to the fence where the feathers were piled up on the other side of the fence. Another one of my huskies also did the same thing so I'm certain this was a ground predator, not an aerial predator, like a hawk. A neighbor notified me of a red fox that was on their property a few weeks ago around 10 am, more evidence of a fox. Could anyone suggest what type of electric fence/hot wire I could add to the existing fence to keep this fox out? I'm planning on getting a LGD but I need a quick solution as I am sure it will return. A small flock of Babydoll sheep and a couple of Pygmy goats are planned for next spring. Shooting the fox is not an option. Thank you for any input/advice you can offer!
