    A STUPID, NASTY, SNEAKY FOX killed 2 out of my 5 Chickens yesterday, 1 being my Favorite [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] And he injured another one, leaving 2 unharmed. He just KILLED Maddi, my FAVORITE and did NOTHING with her body. Then he CAUGHT another one, DRAGGED her into the woods and tried to Kill her, which IT DID! THEN we tried to shoot it but it RAN further back with MY Chicken!!!!!!! We FINALLY got the dead chicken back, moved ALL the remaining 2 and injured 1 into the garage and the FOX CAME LATER THAT NIGHT TO THE COOP AGAIN!!!!!!!!

    STUPID, IDIOT FOX!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I feel for you. [​IMG] I lost a chicken to a fox the first winter I had chickens. It acutally CLIMBED a fence and killed her. It tried to drag the body away, but there was no way he could climb the fence again w/his kill. [​IMG] Sorry for your loss.

    So sad, so sorry. I know you probably have the survivors in lockdown.

    The injured feather-soul. Is she doing okay?

    [​IMG] So sad! Those darn foxes are really clever. Shore up the protection on your coop and hope for the best! Hope you can permanently get rid of him! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the sympathy. Me and my Mom are freezing them ( [​IMG] ) so we can bury them when the snow melts and Ground Thaws.
