This evening while we were enjoying dinner with our eldest son and his wife, a fox was dining out on our chooks. Only the roosters are left. We have lost our old chook , Zorina (daughter of Zorro, a black Andulsian Rooster we had for many years) a bantam and two golden crossbreed chickens who were proving to be quite good, if illusive, layers. That's it, I have had enough and we are not getting anymore. Store bought eggs will do now for cooking and I might be lucky to get a few fresh ones from our other daughter in laws hens. It has been a bad day.
