    After having chickens for 10 years, and going through the ups and downs while using this website to answer any questions, I finally joined! I recently lost my old flock to a freakish midday fox attack :( starting over fresh with some leghorns, RIRs, NHRs, and banty cochins! [​IMG](I've never had bantams!) Excited to be part of the online community finally!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm sorry to hear about your fox attack :( They sure are bold creatures, they are out during the day here too.
    Good luck with your new flock, they sure are cute!

    Enjoy your time here on BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    G’Day from down under the chickentaco [​IMG] Welcome!

    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss and wish you and your little ones all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    So sorry for your loss. Fox are out any time of day or night out here. They are very clever and persistent. You may want to visit the predator threads for your advice on protecting your flock. [​IMG]
