    I am presently going thru the turmoil of the fox. I am busy putting up electric fence as another one of my babies (hens) was killed yesterday. I also have the live trap out with the hope catch the fox. My question is how would you prepare fox to be served to the hens .

    Personally, I would just bury the thing, but I suppose you could boil it or cook it somehow.

    I'd do it like I do other critters I give them. Open up the abdomen so they can get to the guts and other organs. They seem to really enjoy those. If you can cut them open so they can get to meat, they enjoy that too.
