    Looked out and feathers everywhere,on following the trail no bodies were found,looked in a closed shed,apart from a gap about 9in,on opening up,there was just 1 very shook up lady,she gave a low call response on hearing me call,how she got under there unharmed i do not know,i gave her a nice long cuddle,put her in the pen,she tried several times to get onto the ladder for the nest box,eventually made it,i keep checking on her,and i found an EGG,bless,although she is so week and distressed,she knew what to do,isn't nature wonderful,it is all MY fault,as i forgot to go close them in,if she survives,her name will be lucky,it must have been a fox,i have not seen any in a few years,it just goes to show eh,lesson learned

          Its good she got away sheís brave & clever & she wouldíve enjoyed the cuddle from you,she knows you love her,we do what we can & sometimes out of the blue things happen,itís good you found her & put her to safety,I hope youíre both alright! Itís lucky it didnít come back but how can you deter the fox,it needs to stay away,theyíre a bit sly arenít they.

              I would bring her in. Put her in a box and keep her warm. Just clean her wound as you would do a cut on a kid. Salt water if you have nothing else.
              Don't blame yourself Lottie. Xx

                As Scarlet says, Lottie. Keep her safe and warm.
                We've all been there. Mine were taken by a fox in the middle of an afternoon when they were roaming round the garden and I'd just popped inside for a while, thinking they were OK.
                Foxes are cunning, they watch and wait. There may not be much food around for them in winter and they'll take more chances.
                Hope Lucky will be OK tomorrow - and you and MR. xx

                    I too have had mine taken by a fox - on more than one occasion. It's not an easy task keeping them out. Fingers crossed Lottie.

                      Sorry to hear about your fox troubles Lottie, do as the others have suggested and bring her indoors for a day or 2.
