In the last 3 days I've lost 2 hens. 1 aracauna & 1 buff orp. There were tiny dog footprints in the snow leading up to & away from the pile of feathers. I know how to deal with coon's & what not. A fox is a different story - will a fox go into a live trap? I wouldn't want to kill him - but somethings gotta give. The hens are locked up tight at night (footprints around the coop too) so he had to have grabbed them during the day. Footprints are way to small for a neighbor dog - they are all HUGE & never mess with the chickens. Has to be a fox.
