    I don't know if I like that they can do that.

    I was hoping to use an open top coop for my next coop with a tree sort of over the top for shade. I hope they don't know how to do that in ND.

    Just goes to show, you wanna keep your chickens safe, you lock them up at night. I cannot believe how high in the canopy that fox got.

    Don't forget the flying predators, too (hawk, owl, etc).

    Where was the picture of the fox taken? Based on location, is this in Australia? Very cool picture, despite the implications!

    Yes, photo was taken in Geelong Australia, i was kayaking through a river running through farmland. he wasn't bothered by me a all, i suspect he was raiding a nest?
    they are a introduced pest in Australia.
