Yesterday I let my girls out to freerange and had a real scare. We were watching out the window since I had let my youngest chicks out and wanted to make sure they were not being harrassed to bad. But as we were watching my mom saw a fox so I went running out and yelled at it to scare it away. Thankfully none of my girls were hurt. They all ran up towards the house. The babies on the other hand were not sure what to do. So the rest of the evening I kept them in the run. Now I am sitting watching out the window for any sign of it. Is there anything I can do to keep it from coming back? It was around 4ish and still a bit light out. I am not worried about at night cause the coop is very secure. Double walled, off the ground ect. But I am sure it will come back and I would prefer it didn't get any of my girls. Anyone have a good way to get rid of pests. If my dad were around at the time i would have asked for a little help with a gun...but he usually isn't home around the time they are out and about. So any other ideas?
