    oh no-----those darn things are fast, and when they find a weak spot they use it. shooting them is so hard they are fast---call someone in to trap it. im sorry for your losses

    Well 2 of the young hamburgs showed up, but thats it..I only saw one fox and only saw enough feathers for one chicken, so im hopeing the other hen is hiding still.
    Well I hope everyones morning has been better than mine!

    I am so sorry .
    I am headed to hyde park right now with hubby to do some plant shopping.
    My sister is in DC right now making her way up from NC. Her daughter is super excited to get here and meet a chicken. My incubator is reading 95 degrees on one thermometer and 100 on another...so I went and bought a third...I want to scream. Went to home depot for hinges for the second coop door that my husband is building...got side tracked and came home without them

    So....I just let my dogs out before bed..walked over to the hamburg pen..and I noticed my rooster and one young hamburg sitting on top of the coop..looked down and saw blood, then saw my old hen laying dead next to the coop..somthing ripped her head off. This is the 2nd attack in one day..first one around 6am and this time the fox came before 9:30pm.. I had already wrapped the bottom of the pen in chicken wire today...so now im down to 3 hamburgs.I have moved the 2 remaining into the grow out pen with the silkies and their chicks. Im now worried it'll get into the duck pen somehow..I dont know what else to do...its one freaking persistent fox..

One took off before I got off the pourch...got half way to the coops and my 100lb Pit spotted the other fox and chased it all the way across the road into the back of the neighbors property. Iv never seen my dog run to fast
