She got a nice pair of legs.


Comment by Derek Platt. on 14th April 2013 at 00:30
She is a true warrior. I guess it proves that foxes kill for killings sake and not just for food. If foxes are protected, then they shouldn't be. By the way great pic.

You've got to love a militant feminist HEN!!!
....I love this picture, it reminds me of my Grandpa, who took up chickens for the eggs during World War 2. We always had lots of fresh eggs during the rationing!

Good photo. Is this a Rhode Island Red mix??


Comment by David Fairclough on 14th April 2013 at 04:16
Amazing! I just started with chickens and got 2 a few weeks ago but one turned out to be a rooster. I took it back and replaced it and the new hen I got looks identical to Attilla

Foxes are vermin and a threat of rabbies. Lets not forget ducks, lambs and other small to medium wild life...their killers and damage our country side and farm land.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 14th April 2013 at 06:50
Think she's a Rhode Island Red......we used to keep chooks just like her....they give lovely brown eggs....we had the same trouble except a fox got all of ours.....not kept them since then.....too devastating.....nice pic David.....cheers!!!

Derek Platt. Foxes do what comes naturally to them, maybe people who keep chickens should protect them better.


Comment by Les on 14th April 2013 at 11:33
What's the difference between a Hen and a Chicken!


Comment by Cyril on 14th April 2013 at 12:19
If folks had been more vigilant with where they put their waste food, and hadn't started to treat foxes has pets and leaving out food for them, we wouldn't have this problem with the high population of urban foxes which we have now. If the folks who put out food happened to be bitten by a fox, then they would think twice before enticing them into their gardens, there's some nasty bacteria on foxes teeth.

"HMMMMMMMMMM" chicken dinner .


Comment by Gary on 14th April 2013 at 16:37
Foxes have as much right to live as any other animal.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 14th April 2013 at 19:38
Les,
A Hen is a female chicken.
A Rooster, or Cock, is an adult male chicken and a 'cockerel' is a young male chicken.

No Dirty Harry.......beautiful fresh cackle berries..... :-) .....cheers!!!


Comment by David Fairclough on 15th April 2013 at 00:24
