Does anyone know what the habits of a fox are? Just had a fox in the yard right by the house chasing chickens. Don't know how long he was out there. Didn't find a carcase but did find lots of feathers, but no feather trail. It didn't have one in its mouth, so I'm thinking it just mauled one, although I can't find any injuries on the ones that are at the coop. There are a few that I haven't accounted for. Will have to wait until shut down. The dog and I chased it down over the hill into the field. Dh grabbed his .22. As DH was instructing meon how to use the gun, what I thought was the dog, turned out to be the fox coming back up the hill. Our dog had flushed it back. It stopped and looked at us and took off across the neighbors open field. DH ran to the fence, but the fox was halfway across by then. He took a shot, but missed. He said it dodged sideways, so he must of been close. Will the fox be back this evening? I thought maybe if it had kits, it might. Not familiar with the ways of a fox.
