    I agree with Bear foot farms you would be better off putting your money into a fort knox coop knowing what you have going on around you.

    Well when I say breeding foxes in his garden I use that term loosely. He hasn't done anything about them breeding and we are in a town and his garden isn't that big and backs into ours. We have secured the hens as best as we can and made sure we have dug the chicken wire deep under the ground and curved. I was just more curious to see if anyone had actually used the stuff as i had heard about it!!! :)

    IMO Ain't nothing going to scare a city fox, he knows the drill and is use to all kinds of things and changes. now if you were out in the wild where folks rarely go then it might work.

    I'm not gonna bother with it. The city foxes are so brazen! And there is so many of them here now.

    Invest in traps instead of repellents
