Baby Foxes!

Two baby foxes were born recently and live in the culvert at the end of our driveway. Mama fox takes very good care of them but this little guy has had enough of living in the huge pipe no matter how cozy she's made it. He came out the other day to explore his surroundings. I've seen him venturing around the barn too. Adventurous little guy and cute as the dickens. Enjoy the pictures. Some might not be the best quality because I took them through the sidelight by the front door so as not to scare the little one.


Until next time

  1. i see momma coming back from her rounds in the morning when i feed. i know she likes to hunt in the indoor and around the feed shed, so as far as i'm concerned they're a help. i hope these guys stick around for a while! they are so cute and so much fun to watch :-)

  5. Eee! I love foxes... Our farm is full of them. (No foxhunters pass directly through here, either, so I guess they're pretty safe!)

    I always get so excited when I catch a glimpse of the little ones. Thanks for sharing!

  9. How lucky you are to be able to observe this from your house! There's nothing cuter than baby foxes. We had the pleasure of having some in the field beside us a couple of years ago. Thanks so much for sharing all of these pictures. I really enjoyed them.
