"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles." Sun Tzu

These predators are messing with the wrong chicken owner. Always one step ahead. I learned how to make and set snare traps the day after the 2nd Fox.

@Living_Legend you should look into the DP raccoon traps. They’re only about $10 a piece and if maintained will last for a long time. Just use the cable from some kinked up snares to anchor them to something solid and you’re in business.

Will do. Yea I now realize these snares are a one time use.

Snares are better for red foxes though. 10-12” loop about 10 inches off the ground to the bottom of the loop.
Anyway you cut it you’re doing a helluva job! They will keep coming until you get them thinned down enough. I deal with the same thing.
