Last week, we received the very sad news that a fox had been seen running away with one of our chickens. We've had the chickens on campus for almost three years with foxes being no problem, so we are very sad to say we have lost our beautiful little silkie hen, Ginko. This all happened in broad daylight which suggests that the fox was not in good health, as they are usually not out during the day. The chickens will be kept locked in their coop over the winter period and will be well looked after by our chicken coordinator Hillary.
Please do help is keep an eye out for foxes around the chickens, and if you can, do use the path walking by the chicken coop to keep the area busy and deter foxes from going there.
