I had a fox take 3 of my ducks early this morning. Caught him coming back for round four and shot him. I have not had any predator issues in 2 years! He of course got my three favorite ducks. So devastating. My question is what are the odds he(it was a male I checked) has a family in the vacinity that will come back for more? This guy literally ripped the hardware cloth off the pen and got in. I have an electric fence, the charger broke and have had no issues with predators so I never replaced it. My own fault. I have one on order. The ducks pen is right beside my house. I usually hear them and am surprised I did not hear them at all this morning. They had to have been making a ruckus. I will secure them in their house tonight to be on the safe side.
