We have Pygmy goats including a 5month old. And lately we have had foxes showing up around our house (i think there's less than 4). Our dogs tend to run them away but our dogs can't get into our goat pen and we know foxes can bc years ago they crawled over and dug holes to get in to our chickens. So i was wondering are foxes any danger to our goats? Or if we have kids later will the foxes get younger goats?

I would be worried about kids... I don't think a single fox could take down a goat, but could do some harm.

That would have to be a pretty hungry fox. They don't eat red meat as a rule. Birds, mice, and bugs along with fruit and veggies. Just run a hot wire at ground level outside your fence so that they can't dig under. They won't jump in and kill anything that they can't carry off.
