I was sitting here looking though today's threads when I had a panicked sister get me to scare off the coyotes! Thankfully we had put up flood lights last weekend. Not so fortunate that they still hadn't been adjusted to focus properly on the coop and adjacent field. Tonight I was able to scare them off with lots of banging and the unadjusted lights flashing on. I spent the last half hour hanging out outside with some scared babies. Midnight snacks always make me feel better (thankfully I had a few worms stored away for the morning treats). Then trying to adjust the light to the best of my ability... I think the location I chose wasn't the best but it still worked. This time. Any suggestions on things to scare off Coyotes minus weapons? Will bells on the fencing work as a startle and deterrent? Any other tips would be welcome!
