So I no longer have chickens. We allow them to sleep in the run until it gets cold and have done for 8 years now, last night a nasty fox came and got into the run and killed them all. We have an early cube and had converted the end panel so you can step in as it only had a free ranging door so you couldn't clean it out. anyway it involved velcro fasteners and the fox had ripped them. I honestly never thought it was a risk we have had them so long. I am heartbroken.

Oh Dita that is so sad flowers

I had to chase an urban fox away last night - he wasn't the least bit scared of me. I'm sure he'll be back. My worry is that he comes in the day when the ladies aren't in a fox proof run.

At least your ladies had 8 very happy years.

flowers. Its horrible when that happens. We lost ours a few months ago and won't replace them until the spring. I miss them wandering around.
