Good morning all! I am a new chicken owner and just lost my first gal to a fox. I am looking for advice so I'll start with the back story! We have 8 chickens that we raised; 2-3 are looking like Roos. We have a nice and secure coop and run; completely enclosed, buried wire and a 2 foot wire skirt as well. I was determined to keep them safe. We were letting them free range when we were home and this seemed to be going well and keeping them super happy to get some "free time". Last week I let them out while I put groceries in and put my toddlers to nap. I came down to find all of them on my porch tapping the door; noticed I was missing one. Ran out frantically searching only to find a pile of feathers and nothing else. I am terrified to let them out now unless I am there. So I came up with the best I can; I trained my Border Collie Jack to stay near them and watch, which he is more than happy to do! He loves his girls! This morning is the first day I've let them out of the run. I put them in our fenced in back yard with Jack instead of "real" free range. What else can I do? I'm a nervous wreck! Thank you!!!
