We have coyotes - never been a problem. We could see they were skittish about our chicken coop/tractor which moves 2 times a day. I THINK I am about to have a problem. This morning there were 2 coyotes circling our coop. Our very loud dog did the barking thing. They ignored the dog. My very perfect husband did the walking out there to scare them away thing. They ignored him! He was within 20 feet before they decided to move away. Then they went into the woods and returned after he had left. We own no guns. What say you out there?
