i have been losing chickens left and right, and always during the day. well at 3:00pm i was walking to the mailbox when i looked into the woods and saw what i thought was a large cat with a fuzzy tail walking thru the woods. i have three cat and just assumed that it was one of them. well one of my hens started hollering, she ran out of the woods with a red fox right on her tail. i yelled at it and it ran back into the woods. i came to the porch and all of the chickens and ducks are surrounding the back porch. they are afraid to go back to their coop. so far i have lost 5 layers, 2 lf buff cochin hens, and about 25 chicks, pullet, and roos. i need help. what do i do? i can't leave them cooped up during this 100 degree weather.
