    Went out this morning and found the chickens out! I had shut the door last night but not bolted it - both pullets missing, 5 cockerels that I'm trying to get rid of safe and sound [​IMG]

    One pullet found 100 yds away hiding - other one just feathers [​IMG] both 20 weeks what a b****r!!!

    Foxy and me have been playing tag for the last couple of days - I shouted at him Monday when he tried a snatch no more that 10 feet from me!

    Oh no! I am sooo very sorry. Sounds like its time for a trap...better get that fox, before he cleanes you out!

    Didn't they just ban foxhunting on your shores????[​IMG] Where are those folks with the hounds when you need them?

    The hunting season's just about to start - they can still flush them out, but the hounds aren't supposed to kill them!!
    We are allowed to shoot them though and give them a lingering death - (don't set me off on this one please..... fishing is the next target I understand)
