Hello,

We had a flourishing flock of chickens for three years. They were housed in mobile coops, moved everyday and with in the last six months our flock has been killed by a fox. We are now thinking of building a stationary coop and were wondering what the permit cost were out in the Golden Gate Estates area. Does any one know and have any good ideas to rid this fox from preying on our flock?

Thanks,

Buy the way, Welcome to Back Yard Chickens.

I don't want to start something but many government employees can only justify their pay check by being vain glorious butt holes. Therefor It is always better to beg them for forgiveness, and by groveling make them think that you respect them, than it is to either ask them for, or to pay them for their permission.

Can you share a photo of the mobile coop the fox managed to harvest your birds from?

Sounds like it was working for you, but that you need to do "The Tighten Up".

You really need to check with your local government to find out what permit costs, regulations, and whatever else you need would be. As far as getting rid of the fox... if you live in an urban or suburban area, your best bet is a fortified coop for sure, and possibly "animal control". (We live in a rural, farming area - we are our own "animal control".)
