Post To say I hate foxes would be an understatement!!!
Our solar hot wire lost charge last night due to all the overcast weather of late. The piglets got out and caused all kinds of damage to our duck fencing (chrissy dinner is looking very good indeed!) the horrible foxes didn't miss a beat and took all my lovely adult blue swedish stock :x thank goodness I had 14 of these little guys hatch over the last couple of weeks.

What a disaster! We lost quite a few chooks to foxes.. It really is a heartbreaking thing to happen.

Oh no :(

My first llamas arrive on the property on the weekend, hoping they do their job and keep the foxes out!

Thats a real bugger - the damage those ferals cause and you still get clowns trying to protect them :roll:

Try these.

We have foxes all around us but they don't seem to come near the chooks with these out. Also had them out in the lambing paddocks for the last two years and havent lost any lambs to foxes.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your ducks.

The more I hear and read about foxes, the more my loathing of them increases. They are like the cane toad, an introduced species that becauses of their sheer numbers we are now stuck with them.

And they were so numerous this year :shock:

There was a period there where we would hear two to three calling each other in the early evening. We trapped and killed a few, the neighbours both baited, but still they ran around in unbelievable numbers.
