    Do coyotes attack chickens? We have a few that occasionally come visit us, most winters they actually make a little home and settle down for a few months. I'm worried that they might be a danger to chicks.

    DEFINATELY!! Coyotes LOVE chicken. They will dig under a fence to get them, and even dig under the coop. I say....predator proof the coop and run REALLY well. Maybe even electric fencing...if they like to come around so often.
