    I have just moved to a more rural area. I caught a pic of a fox in my yard at night on the game camera. I have never had a fox and I doesn't appear to be bothering my ducks but will it bother chickens or rabbits?

    You might experience some problems if it turns out to be a vixen with a den of cubs. She'll get as much food as she can and start a few caches.

    Depends on the breed of fox. I have both reds and grays here. The former will take an occasional chicken but the latter seem to leave them alone. Red foxes will also take ducks, especially at night if they catch them sleeping on shore,
