3 nights ago, something chewed a hole in my quail house and managed to bite the leg off of one of them. I put out my Stealth Camera last night. There were 83 triggers between 10pm and 4am. They were nearly all of Mr Fox trying to get into my Quail and Chicken houses.
Here is the unfortunate result of the fox attack on my quail. She is still alive and surprisingly perking and so I am giving her a fighting chance for now!

The Quail is OK. Her leg is missing and there is a fair bit of damage to her underside. She's covered in clotted blood, underneath. But no signs of infection. She is hobbling around, feeding and has survived 4 days so far. My 2.5 year old had already named one "Peggy". Which was tempting fate obviously!
