    With all the other predators that I have to watch out for the skunks , possums, coons now I have to add foxes. Was sitting out on back porch discussing with SO about going to close up the chickeys when a full grown fox ran across the yard. it sure was pretty but it was flying. Talk about running to the coops to close them up it was fast sooo glad they had already put themselves up. just had to close the pop doors & runs. Well at least I hope everything is predator proof. Hopefully all that hardware cloth pays off.
