Foxy Season!

Post by rick » Tue Mar 12, 2019 8:36 pm

My neighbour saw a fox in the street yesterday and the bin bags had been rummaged through down the road for the first time I've noticed since last year. They'll be having their cubs soon and chicken dinner will do very nicely! :(

A fox went round our lake in broad daylight yesterday pm and grabbed a Canada Goose which had wandered away from the others.
Hens are under house arrest much to their disgust as they assume if OH is around they are allowed out to roam

Canada goose! Yum! I think its Mid June that the risk drops off to normal again. Foxes are beautiful and if they can nab a few wild water birds in good supply, well - enough to go around. Hopefully, our chooks and ducks are off the menu with a bit of caution and luck.

Never eaten Canada Goose, but we do partake of the eggs. Our farm geese who live on the lake take to laying eggs here there and everywhere including in the Canada Goose nests, and on the manure heap ! The Canada Geese are much more tidy and professional about it.
Does make a nice omelette a goose egg
