I have a fox issue. Trying to convince the hubby that we need an electric fence. I am just not sure if a fox would be able to jump over it. 🤔
I got the fence because of foxes. They kept killing them if we let them out. Since we have set up the fence, I haven't seen the foxes since. The only accident we had was a hawk which killed a older girl. Though that would be understandable because the fence isn't covered. I dont know if the fox would jump over it? Both of my dogs have tried to get underneath the fence to get the food and both were electrocuted and B-lined for the house. Poor girls. :lol:

We have electric wire around the run. One of my dogs won't get any closer than 10' to it now and that's only if she's with us. 😁

Fizz has bumblefoot. It isn't swelling at all (at least what i can see), but you can see the dots on both of her feet. Getting a epsom salt bath ready now. I guess i need to check everyones feet.
I am guessing bumblefoot is pretty common. I only checked a couple of my chickens while soaking Snow and Fizz's feet, and Dot and Greymoon both also had it. They were not bothered by it whatsoever. It wasn't even swelled up.
