Hi all Was in the garden yesterday afternoon with my 2 year old daughter and a big mangey fox casually appeared from under a bush at the back of the garden and trotted across the lawn in front of us. It wasn't bothered at all that we were in the garden. I'm still a few weeks off finishing our run and getting our birds, but I had planned on letting them range in the garden during the day but now I think I'd better change my plans. Were we live is overrun with foxes at the moment, we see them everynight but the council takes no action to control their numbers as they are not classed as vermin. I realize that most of you fellow BYC's are based in the USA so you proabbly won't of seen this story - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/10468276.stm a fox entered a hosue and attacked two babies as they slept - really nasty. Our run is fairly big (8ft X 12ft x 6ft high) and the coop inside is very solid. I'm sinking the weld mesh into the floor and have the bottom on the run edged with railway sleepers so I'm happy that they will be secure as possible but I'm really annoyed that they can't run free in the garden. Maybe getting a dog is the answer???
