    2 days ago in the middle of the day my favorite hen "Izzy" and 4 of her 6 babies dissapeared.
    No bodies, no feathers, nothing. We live next to a wooded area that the chickens like to go to.
    From other posts I have read in this fourm, I think we have a fox. Of all my chickens, she had to be
    the one to get killed. I am so sad and out for revenge.
    The other 2 babies are ok and were running around crying the other day and that is how I knew
    something was wrong.

    That's too bad! [​IMG] I'd be keeping my chickens closed up and hunting some fox! Good luck.
