My adventures are endless with these chickens. I am amazed at how much I like them. At around 5:45am a lone coyote broke into our coop. Thank goodness I was awake. As soon as I heard the commotion. I sent Moose (our big manly catahoula leopard dog) (who is very gun shy.) I had a BB Gun in tote) out to get the coyote. He stood on the deck. Staring at me. With all the screaming commotion down in the yard. WIMP! So I can in the house got dressed and ran out with Riley's BB gun. (That I have never shot) Takes me a good 30 seconds to get one fired off at it. (I'm lucky I found that thing because my next choice was the 9mm) #jailtime*** But it has since ran off. I searched around the yard and found two of the three of my chickens up by the house underneath my bedroom window.(I knew they were there because they were both screaming out, something came and tried to eat us alarms) Picked both of them up, (they came willingly as to say "please save us!") I put them up in the coop and locked it. As this point I figured the **** coyote had taken one of them. But I walked the backyard just to make sure. Finally I walked up upon a very shaken hen. Her feathers were all ruffled up. But she was alive and still had the ability to run from me. But I did catch her and I looked her over. Just some messed up feathers is all I could find. I will look her over better once it is daylight. (Not a fan of not being able to see in the woods.) Holy cow. What a crazy morning in the dark cold snow. The things I do for those goofy hens. How does everyone protect from coyotes? Or is there any kind of product out there that will keep them away?
