    I so feel for you and know what you are going through. I had a fox raid my coop one week and he got away with 12 of my chickens including three of my freshly hatched babies (six in one day alone). When he was done the only ones I had left was momma hen and her five remaining babies. I was so upset to go out to the run everyday and find nothing but piles of feathers. Now we have an electric fence (he was climbing over the fence) and he had not been in since. I know that he is still around because I see him walk by the run all the time and now someone has loaned my husband a gun and we are going to get rid of him and all his buddies that stop by the next time we see them. good luck
