Thread: Dead chicks, darn fox!

  1. #1

    Dead chicks, darn fox!

    So I got some white leghorn chicks and put them in a sturdy cage last night outside after they had spent time indoors and were ready to go outside.

    Fox got stuck inside the cage so was there at 6:45 when we discovered it. The fox had killed them all and eaten 3 of the 4 chicks. We let the fox go. My fault that I left one side of the cage unsecured so the fox pushed that side in.

    So if anyone knows of any large white egg layers available, let me know. I'm willing to take chicks up to 1 year olds.

    PS my big bad American Bulldog / Pit Bull mix was outside on the deck sleeping a few feet from the cage and did nothing to prevent the fox from getting in the cage. My boy is fired as a guard dog for the farm. Its obvious he is only meant to be a lover-boy.

    I'm in the market for a REAL guard dog also lol.

    It's your fault the chicks died, then. Why would you get any more - that seems pretty irresponsible.

    Really? You posted your business on a public forum and expected and invited NO discussion, judgmental comments, discourse whatsoever?

    I am hateful for asking an obvious question?

    You said it was NOT the fox's fault the chick died....so you let it go. I am confused by that - as a fox is a fox is a fox and it will always do what a fox is going to do. PREY & kill to eat.

    Why would you therefore, NOT prevent the fox from trying to kill the chicks in the future?

    A dog outside nearby which never made a peep around a fox killing it's prey is very odd, as well. I would imagine a cage full of little baby chicks could make quite a ruckus.

    But hey - who am I to ask a question since you obviously go into psychiatric convulsions over anyone "judging" your motives. More than a few posters (besides me) on this forum have also questioned your "techniques/methods/motives" as they pertain to your so-called "Pet rescue" agency/business or whatever you want to call it. So I apparently not the only one.

    Seek help, you're a nuttie.

    Tractor supply had some yesterday I thought they said they were leghorns and that they really needed to get rid of them because they were getting big enough to fly out of the containers. Should have killed the fox though. He will be back

    Duh. You let the fox kill the chickens. Get a gun and kill the fox.

    Having too much ammunition in the house is like having too much fuel in your aircraft; the only time you have too much is when you're on fire.
