Before we can even think of replacing the 2 chickens killed by the fox, we spent much time improving their fortifications. Dare I say that the Henclosure looks a tad more Auschwitz-like now? Hey ho - one has to be practical when it comes to fox defences! Al added some overhanging brackets to which Chris and I attached 2 strands of (fully tested!) electrified wire. We also added some more reinforcing mesh to a new and higher 8'X4"X4" post raising the fence on the south side of the Henclosure. Now Monsieur Reynard 'knows'
where he can make a return visit with another killing spree in mind, we hope his wet whiskers touch the wire! Hopefully the overhanging Bonica rose softens the otherwise austere appearances.
