time for battle

For the last 2 days the dog has been on leash or in the house. We are finding dead laying hens and needed to make certain that she is not the culprit. More dead chickens appeared on the field so she is exonerated.

Homer discovered yesterday a fox den dug in on our property. When he tightened the gate the beast must have lost egress, and set up residence.

Today that fox den must be cleared. Not certain how that will happen..we have some ideas..but last night was spent with walkabouts every hour and a half or so, checking on the safety of the birds. There is too much to do during the day to be up all night. And each of our chickens is too valuable to be taken by uninvited poachers.
