Good morning. I write with a very sad heart. We forgot to lock our girls' run last autum and the fox had taken our 3 young hens (my children had held them as they hatched), and beheaded and left our rescue red and our big, gorgeously fluffy Cochin. As we surveyed the carnage, our little bantam, the chicks' 'mummy' timidly came out of hiding. Gutted is an understatement. She was our only survivor. We got her 2 new friends and one of dad's bantam cockerels came to live with us. Last night at dusk, the neighbour came running round, heard a racket in the back garden. We hadn't locked the run YET. Too late. Our gorgeous little roo was gone and little Pearl (the only survivor last time) was wounded on the grass. Feathers everywhere. We brought her in and I'm bathing the wound on her back. She on her feet again and trying to 'talk'. She's sipping sugar water. Pray she pulls through. My question is how do we go about fox proofing our garden? The fox came back last night as there's dig/scratch marks. Our girls have free run of the garden, and a 2mx1m safe run attached to their house. We don't want to keep them locked up. But the foxes are roaming in the daytime and know where they are now. Any ideas????? Thank you.
