Between my neighbor and I, we have had 8 chickens come up missing in a week's time. Yesterday, was the third one for me, however, there were feathers scattered from one of the small coops through chicken wire stapled to 3 board fencing out into my horse pasture. I never saw any traces of the other ones. Can someone out there tell me whether this would be a fox or hawk? I do hear fox cry sounds every night out back towards my neighbor's house--her house is towards the back 40 of my property where it is wooded. If it's a fox, I plan on running parameter electric both on top of the board fencing and on the outside bottom. I ordered some solar eyes today. I plan on laying in wait, if it's a fox, this weekend along with a .223. I have seen fox in the evening during the summer, but only now has this become an issue. Since I do have very expensive rare breeds also, I need to protect them to the best of my capabilities. The 8 rb boys do free range around the house, but the girls are in a fenced area within the boarded area.
