I have never heard of a black coyote. That's crazy! SO sorry for your losses, too. :(

Speckled Hen, tell your neighbors that foxes are an endangered species.  Mention that the bag and possession limit is only one fox per season and that the fox season just closed. 

 

Then don't forget to tell my Stone Mountain relatives that fox meat tastes just like chicken.  I guarantee you that your fox problems will be solved. :lau

Coyotes are to dumb to break into a chicken coop. I live in the middle of nowhere in Southern Western North Dakota, and there are coyote dens right by our house, and chicken coop. And I have never had any troubles with them on my with one raccoon who through a rock at one of my Windows to break it, it the killed one Pekin Duck and a young hen.
