    Today we heard the chickens going crazy so we went outside and we saw a fox with feathers all in his mouth. Then we scared him
    off and found the chicken that he got she is not dead but we are afraid that he might come back.We don't know what to do.[​IMG]

    poor chicky!! you've got to secure your coop the best you can if you free range them you may want to keep them up for a few days but I'm sorry to say it will be back [​IMG] once they find a free meal they just keep coming back it sucks im sorry!

    Oh my,I feel for you.I have a big fox that killed a roo and a hen 2 days ago.My DH has been trying to shoot it for weeks but it always shows up when hes in the shower and I only use a 410,I can't get close enough.I wont use the 22 because of the cows.

    Theres two things you can do to deter this fox you have.The first thing you can do is hire some one to get rid of it BUT if you want to spear his life it will cost a lot more and it may not stop him where as its a lot cheaper to permantly get rid of him by shooting it your self personly i would use a 4/10 thats the best way.
