It's evident I have coyotes after my flock. There's more then one coyotes also and they are hunting during morning/midday/dusk. Last week they took 2 and injured one hen very badly. I'm surprised my hen is still alive and I'm doing everything I can to save her. Yesterday late morning about 11:30am I heard at least 2, if not 3 coyotes about 50ft from my house making their very distinct yelping noises. They took 1 hen last year about this time too and I saw 1 coyote last year midday running along side my run, then crossing the street to the neighbors coop. My flock is now locked up for the time being. It's been cool enough to keep them in the coop and run. Once it reaches 90 outside, I have to let them out to get shade under the trees and running water. The run is nicely shaded, but it is not natural shading and it gets very hot. I'm not only worried for my flock, but my kids and other pets too. I do hear the coyotes at night, but right now it's not a full pack. Live coyote traps are not easy to find at a decent price either.
