Sorry about your hens! We saw fox tracks around our coop last winter so I set up on old trail cam. Sure enough, 4am, Reddy fox was there. It was an old camera with the red glow infrared, and it must have spooked him by the look on his face! Never seen him since, but shortly after that a fox was hit on the road near here. You can get those boxes with LED eyes that shine at night and are supposed to freak out any nefarious infidels. I'd like to try em.
Check out Predator Eye on Amazon.ca
