A Fox in the Hen House

I’ve been writing the Tuesday blog for several years now. Sometimes inspiration comes in funny ways. Today, in the Hot New Projects thumbnails, there was a fox. And next to it was a chicken. All I could think about was how those two animals should probably not be around each other. A fox in the hen house? Oh no!

And here is the fox in question. He’s been expertly embroidered by Ludi. Is it possible he has a chicken dinner in mind?

Here are the poor chickens that reside right next to him in the thumbnails. They look like they’re alert to danger, but can they really be safe? (Art quilt by wendiek.)
This fox by artsycandice looks sweet and innocent, but I’m guessing he can’t be trusted. He does have a secret pocket…
thisbirdsabsurd‘s lovely chickens do not look as if they would be comfortable around any fox, no matter how cute or cuddly he may seem. Everyone knows that foxes are notorious for their love of chickens. Not as friends, though, as a good meal.
If you’ve been rooting for the chickens to come out ahead in this one, you’re in luck. Here’s a fantastic chicken coop, built by puppybreath. The protective chicken wire goes down a few feet to discourage foxes from digging their way in. The chickens are safe!

There’s a plethora of foxes and chickens co-existing on Craftster, and several chicken coops to help keep them separate. And, as always, *No animals were harmed in the creation of this blog post.*

    Every single one of those projects is beyond fantabulous, love Love LOVE them all!
    I sure do miss the chickens we had on the farm. Just gotta keep up the pressure on city council to allow back yard hens so we can have a small flock again. Double plus bonus; there are not a lot of foxes in the city, cute or otherwise ;).
