    I've got a freakin fox that is tormenting my chickens. Any time I let them out, one gets picked off. I have seen the fox patrolling the run but haven't gotten outside in time. I'm too busy to sit outside with a gun waiting. I've tried a trap with bacon or live chicken but no luck. My poor chickens are pecking each other bald despite plenty of room but they are used to free ranging. Any ideas?
