¿Qué comen los zorros aparte de gallinas y pollos?
Foxes eat a wide range of things from mammals and birds to insects, worms and vegetables. There is an increasing problem with foxes in urban areas scavenging for food in dustbins. You should avoid leaving anything tempting lying around for the foxes, even fruit that has fallen from trees and spilt bird food will alert them to a potential feeding site.
Unfortunately foxes don\'t just kill for hunger\'s sake. Whole flocks of chickens have been destroyed by one fox, even though it probably only ate one of them.
Scraped damage to your lawn. Foxes will scratch up grass to find tasty bug and beetle morsels.
Droppings containing lots of berries or pips.
Screaming in the late evening and night. The sound of a fox can be unnerving as it sounds similar to a childlike scream.
It is great to let your chickens out of the run as often as possible, but if you suspect any fox activity make sure that you only let them out when you are around. The fox will not approach if he senses human activity.
