So we just had a horrific murder in our coop last night (before we could lock it up for the evening). All but one of our chickens gone from a fox. Needless to say the one remaining chicken is quite traumatized and sits in a corner of the coop in fear jumping at the slightest disturbance (she used to be so social). I kept her locked up today, not that she seems to mind. This is our first encounter with a fox and I'm just wondering if these are typically night time killings or its something we need to be concerned about during the day too? I'm trying to figure out if she can be unsupervised during the day until we can get her a more secure location or if i should keep her completely locked up. She's been going 2 years now fairly free ranged so I hate to keep her on lock down but it's better then the alternative. It's really annoying that the stupid fox didn't even eat everything he killed. Somehow it seems better when I picture him being hungry and just trying to feed himself.
