The chickens are in a large run at night but the latch was left off accidently.

Thanks for the replies.

Waterbutts - It did look almost bulldozed. The stalks were flattened the corn eaten with one or two semi-eaten further up the garden. My garden has 3' chainlink fencing except for the end - that backs on to a school playing field and had 5' iron railings about 6" apart now hidden by a laurel hedge. One or two potatoes are well nibbled others just left above ground. It also nibbled with a single tomato but hasn't bothered with them since. I didn't mention all 7 of next doors chickens were killed - 3 were found buried in the garden. We have seen foxes in the area but would they eat sweetcorn and potatoes?

Just as my sweetcorn was ripe something devasted the crop breaking down most of the crop and eating the corn. There were two further visits and similar results. Since then, it/they have taken to digging up my potatoes and eating them. Any ideas what is doing the damage and how I could prevent it next year?
