I’m sorry to report the death of Mo, our large white chicken, who fell victim to a fox in broad daylight. Nature can be very cruel.
During the past few months we also lost two male ducks, one female and another of our chickens. Putting them safely to bed before dusk is no guarantee of survival, the foxes seem to be getting bolder.
Here’s a clip of a couple of foxes from earlier in the week, just a few hundred metres from the house. Beautiful - but I wish they’d leave our birds alone.
