My fiance and I went to town last night and left the birds out. We've done it so many times. We were on our way home when my father called and told me that there was a large coyote chasing chickens around the back yard. I couldn't get home fast enough. When we got home, most of our older girls came running to us. But our 3 month old chicks were nowhere to be found. I parked the truck and didn't even turn it off. I was off to the safe for a gun. By the time we got out to the Coop, the coyote was gone. We found 1 RIR chick huddled in a corner shaking and I found the rest of our Chicks under the Coop, hiding. When everything calmed down and we had all of them tucked safely away in the coop, I found the pile of feathers in the corner of our backyard. One of Black Sex Links was gone. I'm pretty heartbroken about it. We will be ready if that sucker comes back looking for an easy meal! Thanks for letting me vent a little bit.
