We've lost over ten chickens in the last couple of weeks. Most of the time there is no evidence of the attack. A neighbor told us she saw a coyote take one of the chickens at about 10am one morning. We reinforced the perimeter of our property. And set a live trap. After a few days we removed the trap and we're hoping for the best. Then we did head count, we are still losing chickens. Upon another inspection of the fence, we found feathers. We are at a loss as to what is getting our girls and how to 'fight' this predator. I think I will start putting them on lock down, for now.
