Reddy the Fox

The chicken fence up
"The fox went out on a chilly night..." starts one of my favorite children's songs.  Only the fox was out in broad day light, trotting along the fence line by the neighbor's pasture.  Fortunately, Jeff and MacTavish were patrolling the yard and saw him, so MacTavish could give some warning barks, which had him turn tail and lope across the field.  But next time we might not be out there.  I did the only  sensible the chicken fence has been re-instated.  Hate to do it, however, I would hate more to loose one of the flock to feed the fox family!  It should only be for a few weeks, then, once the family is out of the den, they usually move on.
