The chickens are no more. Sunday morning was spent clearing up the remains of one and sunday afternoon was spent at the vets having last one put down after the fox broke into the pen at 2 pm in front of us, kids kicking and screaming, Lolly even crawled under the wendy house on stilts to try and rescue the chicken and kick away the fox. The chicken was too badly injured and I had her put to sleep.

Am looking into electric fencing, have a couple of months before the chicks are old enough to go outside so may buy the things I need bit by bit, cant believe I need to do this just to keep a few chickens safe!

I'm so sorry for the kids--that all sounds just horrible.

On a brighter note, I hope the three of you have a lovely holiday.
