Early the other morning…..

…..a fox came to visit. We heard the hens making a rumpus and my son saw the fox slink off with something between it’s jaws.

We found some tell tail signs of feathers –

…and followed the trail down the track…..

…across the field and under the fence, across the small river.

Poor Tiger, one of our young cockerels has gone. Early morning breakfast. Such is nature. Tiger was a feisty young fellow, so I expect he put up a fight. I imagine the fox with a sore nose.

      That would be nice – but he was back this morning (Sunday) – but got chased away before he could do any more damage!

    No!!!im so sorry-ours were killed this week too and the kids were devastated as they’ve been spending so much time with them now we’re all at home. I had to explain that the foxes needed to feed their babies but it’s hard when in reality they had left the chickens and not even benefitted from a good meal!!

      Oh dear, poor chickens, poor kids. It is a tough life lesson, but important one for them to learn none the less
