I have had more than half of my flock wiped out by Foxes and Raccoons. So I am looking to buy foot traps and was wondering if anyone on here had any for sale. (Cecil County,MD 21911)

Make sure that it is legal where you live to use footholds. I know some states don't allow footholds at all (like my state) and others wont allow you to use them without a permit. Live cage traps are totally fine to use anywhere when people are having predator problems with their chickens or in their gardens. But because footholds can be a hazard for domestic animals, they usually have some restrictions. Just do some research before you go buy some. But if its legal, the trapping supply shop that I buy from has great prices on almost everything. http://www.fntpost.com/

Thanks ChickenCanoe, I have been on their website before but I just ordered 2 of the dog proof coon traps and some scent from fleming outdoors. Then I found a bridger fox kit on ebay and ordered that as well so they better watch out!!!

Here in MD they are Legal and you do need a Fur Bearer Permit which I have, and I live on almost 12 acres most of which is woods. So my traps will be away from domestic animals. But thank you for the concern and website link much appreciated!!
