Last night I’d just come in and sat down when a very concerned teenager appeared at my door saying she had seen a fox heading in the direction of my chickens! I spent an hour patrolling the chickens wishing they would go in to the safety of their huts but the chickens were not concerned of the dangers they were facing! On my patrols I went to the boundaries of our land which we leave undisturbed for the wildlife to be met with hoards of rubbish and tipping! a footpath runs across the field adjacent to our land and people throw their bags of dog poo and general rubbish into our “wildlfe” area! ooooo makes me so cross! anyway back to the point… i went in to get a drink and then the dogs started to bark and chickens seems to sense something! I went out to find the fox running away with an egg in it’s mouth! silly fox spends hours burying these eggs we’ve found one in every raised bed and neighbours thought we were playing tricks on them!! so the chickens were safe and sound and finally i tucked them up to roost!!
