I got my first 3 chickens on Sunday, they are ex commercial chickens, and I bought a new wooden hutch that claimed to be “fox proof”. I read up on fox proofing and followed instructions to use chickenwire to prevent the fox burying into the run. The first night was fine. The next day we got 4 eggs!!! Then last night I woke at 3 am and then heard a faint noise from the chickens. I ran downstairs and as I opened the back door I saw the back of a fox with its front inside the coop, it had opened the “fox proof” latch. I clapped my hands and it ran. Amazingly all 3 chickens were still alive, 2 in the coop that seem unharmed and 1 that got itself behind our waterbut. I brought all the chickens into a box in the house for the rest of the night. Unfortunately the chicken that was outside looks like he was bitten and seems to have shock, he’s really sleepy. Ive ordered 5 extra latches, motion sensor spray & ultrasound, and I’m planning to keep the chickens in my house overnight until it arrives. And I’ve reinforced all the chickenwire. But, my question is, now the foxes know they are here will they just keep coming back every night and terrorising the chickens, especially given that they found them so quickly? Or might they give up if they find the coop too secure for them?
