I am just sooo mad- at myself. All of the sudden, after 3 years of no problems, the coyotes have started taking my hens- gone from 50 to 15 in less than 2 weeks. What really makes me mad at myself is, I put a radio out by the barn on a talk show station a week ago, and since then, no coyotes. But last night, I forgot to check it to be sure it was on,(it wasnt) and BAM, they hit again- They got 4 hens. I am just so depressed and saddened by this. I have 4 1/2 foot 3 rail fencing with no-climb all the way around the inside of it, but the coyotes are slinking in through the tiny hole at the bottom the hens use to access the free range areas. I know thats the way they are going because I kept finding piles of feathers right around that opening only. So today I ordered electric poultry fencing and will be installing it very soon- I just hope and pray I still have chickens by that time.
