post #58401 of 62322

I spent the last 7 years of my professional life as office manager/nurse meaning I spent a lot of time on the phone. I HATE talking on the phone now to the point that once our cell phone carrier was trying to find a better package for us and asked me how much I talked on the phone. I told them to look up our usage. They were stunned. I think I had 7 minutes on the phone talking in a month and somewhere around 20 texts. They said that it was one of the lowest usages that they had ever encountered.

 

I tell people now that if they want to get in touch with me, email me or text. As for talking on the phone, I'm retired.

For those who have come to grips with their kid's/others bad choices, it's good to see and hear. You are so right in that the maker said to love all and let him do the judgement. It's not right for us to judge another for their choices. A primary reason why I dislike organized religion... they are quick to judge and slow to love/accept, but they want your money either way. And the maker also said you have a direct line to him through his son... you don't "need" the church to get where we all hope to be going :D Justsayin

I would go with a high Joule electric fence and buried fence "skirt". How many chickens are you willing to lose if the coyotes aren't all that offended by moth balls?

 

I have a buried pen skirt on the existing coop, which is what has kept them safe there for the past 2 years.  Can't do the electric fence on the other person's property.  We have recently purchased our own home, and are currently building a new coop.  The pen skirt will be buried 2 feet, and extend 3.5 feet out from the coop.  I have already purchased everything needed, and will have an electric fence, as soon as the new coop gets built.  The large hole was about 5 feet out from the coop, past the pen skirt.  Today I put lots of mothballs out past the pen skirt. 

It's all fun and games until the entire flock is dead because of poor biosecurity practices.

Those are some educated coyotes!! Do they read this forum about how far from a fence a predator will dig and backed up another couple of feet????

You need a big live trap. Or if you know somebody who hunts or traps invite them over one night. Coyote pelts are in demand in the area fur market and trapping is quite common around us. I would go as far as putting electric fencing where I could even if it is only covering 3 sides of your run and coop.

 

Also consider getting a big tough dog or two to guard your coop.
