A canny preda­tor

Country Smallholding - - Inside this month -

ANY­ONE WHO keeps birds has to ex­pect a vis­i­ta­tion from sly old Mr Fox at some point in time, no mat­ter how care­ful they are, or ob­ses­sive about se­cu­rity. Try­ing to thwart him (or her) is an end­less pit­ting of wits against a very wily, ap­par­ently in­tel­li­gent preda­tor who ap­pears de­ter­mined to get what he/she wants. How ap­pro­pri­ate, there­fore, that not only does Andy Cawthray, whose own poul­try have pro­vided plenty of feasts for Rey­nard over the years, of­fer in­valu­able tips on how to keep your flock safe (page 19), but VOSS. farm­ing is giv­ing away a fan­tas­tic £ 329 Premium fenc­ing kit (page 26) to help your charges stay safer. Don’t for­get to en­ter — you have to be in it to win it — and good luck!
