    My girls free range so it's to be expected, but whatever got this one was bold. took it right out in the front yard, at noon. killed it about 20 yards away in the bushes, ate the head, neck, and one wing left the rest. Any ideas? The wife says she thought she say a small fox this moring about 200 yards from the house trying to cross the road. My hen will have the last laugh (sort of) the remainder of her is hanging over a trap where I found her.

    So I set a leg trap yesterday, using what was left of my bird hanging above it for bait. This morning leg trap closed, no animal in it, no bait.
