    I can't help, but I sure would like an electric gismo too! We lost three hens just last night.

    Tonight we have them locked in the barn. The ladies are definitly stressed today.

    We have a have-a-heart trap set in the regular chicken run.

    We had a Coondog , his name was Mayo, he was good with raccoons and foxes, also I was told ( don't know if this works or not) to urinate around the chicken coop, only guys should do this, no girls. the Male human urine repels the fox I don't know if this worked but I did it, for several years, and no fox around, how about that? I was told this work also with bears.

    it's a trap that doesn't kill them. it's one that the ASPCA commonly uses to catch cats or small dogs.
