    Ten safe years and then two lost to Mr Fox

    Thank you. They really were the most friendly chickens so did feel I let them down, but we have never seen foxes in the day and I suppose I had got complacent.
  2. In memory of my dear little friends Gypsy and Robyn I’m so sorry I didn’t defend My oh so trusting little friends I talked to you when I was down You always took away my frown You’d cluck and coo and even purred – I’d never heard that from a bird What can I say, I let you down When Mr Fox moved into town All that’s left, a pile of feathers Mr Fox you’re far too clever I knew my girls could be your prey But you’re not supposed to be about in the day When I let my brood out of their pen They’d follow me round like some mother hen All that poop, and the messy lawn I’d pardon I loved the way they enjoyed the garden When suddenly girls you roamed too far I wondered if Gypsy had encountered a dog or a car But now I see scattering offered protection A fox cannot run in three directions. Mr Fox you can venture out at night In their Eglu, my girls sleep tight Many have slept there over the years Safe and warm, with no fears. So Mr Fox you made me rage With thoughts of catching you in a cage I hear that chocolate will take you out I might be leaving some about Perhaps I’ll campaign to allow hunting again Those hounds would have you from your den But I’ve been reading about your ways Because I don’t want my last chicken slayed I hear you eat rats and slugs and snails If you’d stick to that diet, we might even be pals. So from now on my chickens will stay in my sight So please go back to hunting at night I’m sure you’d rather be aloof And this eatery will be fox-proofed So go elsewhere for your fast food And leave me to enjoy my brood.
