I am literally at the end of my rope. I have never had to deal with foxes before, and so I'm not sure what to do to keep it from killing my birds other than making sure they're locked up tighter than Ft. Knox. I set out a trap this past weekend and caught a possum, but I know it's not what has been taking off with my birds. It has literally jumped up several feet to take birds off their perch, has dug under fences, pulled birds through wire, and snatched anyone that thought they were hiding good enough. I've lost all but two of my silkies, all my adult OEGB's, all but one of my fryers, 6 muscovies, and about a dozen turkey poults, not to mention other various chicks. I suspected a raccoon at first, but there's some things that have happened that don't explain a raccoon, and I know for a fact that there is a fox in the area. I suspect it's come to view me as a buffet. Are they difficult to lure into live traps? What kind of bait should I use? How big of a trap should I use? Snap traps, snares, and poison are not an option because I have cats and dogs. I'd stake it out, but it's attack times are not consistent, and it's got a "smash and grab" tactic. It's very fast about hitting and running, and it's always at night.
