Didn't Come Home to Roost

So it seems that we have lost one. I usually am a little hesitant about leaving the chickens to free-range when I'm not home, but I figured they'd be ok for just a few hours. We haven't seen any fox around and the hawks haven't been very successful in their fly by's.
But a couple of days ago one of our girls didn't come home. I didn't think anything of it because she is usually one of the the dirty little stay outs that sometimes doesn't come home to roost until it is almost dark. I sometimes find her laying on the protective mesh above the coop door. Unfortunately, it has been 3 days and still no sign of her. Jason went out yesterday morning to walk around the perimeter a little and found a large orange and red fluffy tailed animal running away in our neighbors yard. With that description it had to be a fox...either that or a large easter bunny that fell in some paint.

Well Mr. Swiper the Fox...I hope you had a nice dinner!! Because if I see you come around here again you will be facing a double barrel!

RIP : Rosalie
