Really sorry to hear that - I'd just been admiring Crunchie's photo on the piccies thread.  She was a beauty.
What a horrid shock for you.    :(

Everyone ok today so the little houses must have been a week spot I won't use them again untill I have sorted out any issues so it can't happen again. :(

I am clearing another area of land and going to put these in it within a big pen with a top like the other main house and use it for the smaller birds and just let my faves free range.  It will also help as if I have to go out I can leave them all in enclosed pens without it being to cramped for them.

Right better let the daughters OH know what his next job is  :lol:  :lol: Oh and the stable floor needs concreting, greenhouse roof needs replacing....... gosh he is going to be busy  :tongue2:

just got a chance to catch up on a few posts, really sorry to hear about the attacks, its awful  . . .  . . . . every time i read about these it makes me wonder if I've made everything as secure as i can, but you cant account for every single probability including the weather and gales can you?

a hasp and staple or a sliding bolt fitting would be better than just the cabin hook types on their own, even if they're not 'locked' they couldn't come undone on their own. i fitted cabin hooks to the side door and the main run door on ours and then added a sliding  bolt as well after trying the cabin hook on its own, like this below

barrel bolt


thats a really good site for DIY stuff by the way, have a mooch around cos all ya hasp and staples, locks, hinges etc are dead cheap, far cheaper than B and Q and all that.

Really  sorry to hear about Crunchie & Twirl.  

Since I got chucks my feelings towards fox's has changed, no longer the cute little doggy like thing but a real & nasty threat to the girls.
