This morning we went down to the chicken house to gather the eggs and check on Susan’s small flock of hens that have free range of the garden.
On opening the door we realized that two of the four hens were missing. Later Susan found one of the hens under the pine tree with its head removed. Foxes are clever hunters and don’t leave much evidence of their visit.
We all love nature and most people have a live and let live attitude but this experience was a bit upsetting and I guess Susan will have to become ever watchful when it comes to keeping her chickens and Mr. Fox apart.
