I shoot most vermin, but i will not shoot a fox this time of year, they have dependant cubs, by the end of June the cubs should be independant.
Electric fence for the time being.

I will continue to trap foxes round my poultry at this or any other time of year ---why would I want to allow them a breathing space to increase their numbers? When the fox population here has dropped a bit so they are only an intermittent problem then I'll change my mind.

so very true lottie if you give them a breather you might as well kill the chicken for it and leave it at its hole to save it the job of walking to your land to have to kill it itself if i saw a fox id shoot it whatever time of year well maybe id trap it 1st to see the culprit in action
