I am in the process of building a chicken coop with a large scratch yard. I saw a red fox last week and think "he" lives in the woods behind my house, never saw him before. What I would like to know is can I live with this fox and "fox proof" the coop and scratch yard for the chickens. Will an exterior fencer work to keep him out of the yard? What are your thoughts? I will not kill the fox as I let everything live. I looked up trapping but that seems to be difficult.
