    My neighbor has foxes living under his barn! he thought they just had come up when the creek came up, but my DH went to check on the baby goats that the neighbor has, and he saw the foxes coming out from under the barn! Right in the same pen as the baby goats!!
    He also is missing a few guineas! he has 2 more, but the fox has a family! parents and some little ones, that are not so little anymore!!!

    yeah they are pretty, but as long as they stay down the road! they live about 1/4 mile down the road, I think I would trap them and take them out in the woods, far far away!!!!

    I agree they're gorgeous...

    But should the neighbor really let them stay there? They can get nasty. :|

    They really are beautiful...I'd love to have foxes here, but neighborhoods have long ago ran them all off. I'd just be sure I reinforced my chicken coop to keep the chickens safe. After all the foxes have to have a place to live, too...and they were here before we were. We move into their homes, not the other way around, poor little guys.
