    New Egg here- I've been raising chickens in central Vermont for 5 years now. Last fall I lost all 6 of my hens in the same day to a fox :( But, I've beefed up security and I've got new babies coming this spring! I'm really excited to have little peeps again, and to be a part of the BYC community! :D

    Welcome to BYC.[​IMG] I'm so glad you joined our wonderful community!

    I'm sorry to hear about your losses to the fox![​IMG] I've been lucky to have never lost chickens to predators, but it has always sounded like an awful experience. I hope you enjoy your new chicks as much as the old![​IMG]

    Sorry about your losses. Fox can climb, dig, jump high and make fast getaways. They are also persistent. If they know food is around they will keep coming back. Folks on the predator forum may have good ways of outsmarting them.
