We had a young fox in the garden the other day, which I chased off.  It was back in the wee small hours this morning and woke me up, as I could hear something in the garden.  It fled as soon as I put the downstairs lights on, but this morning has revealed footprints all over the cover of Alphie's run and an attempt to dig under the eglu.

Fear not fans of the small white wonder.  He slept through the lot and is up and about strutting his stuff without a care this morning :lol:

I'm going to get some wire mesh for the house to sit on to deter the fox, but be warned folks.  Darker mornings and evenings, plus young foxes dispersing isn't a happy mix for poultry keepers  ::)

Darker evenings and mornings!!!!! :mad:

We have them all day every day in broad daylight and in the evening throughout the year.

Totally fearless of humans, screaming and fighting in the middle of the night and early morning, wrecking gardens and defecating in the garden, in front of the garage doors and  all over the front garden so it got trodden in the house.

And where we are there are loads of them.

We have moved to the upstairs bedroom in our bungalow and the other night one of them walked past and stuck its nose in the open window. I have seen one walking on the very top of next doors bungalow and sit there screaming. :mad: :mad: :mad:

The majority of the neighbours are sick of them.

Scuse the rant. Hope you keep your fox away from Alphie, New Shoot.
