Third year of hobby farming, and we lost our first 5 week old chick last night . I am 99% sure it was a fox, because my neighbor saw the thing run across her horse pasture from our yard just before lunch (thought they were nocturnal!). So now I am finally in the "predators and pests" section of the forum . Guess I should buy a trap? Batton down the hatches a bit better? It was SO SAD to see her little white feathers in various spots of the yard... I don't wanna see that AGAIN!
