Two have dissapeared. Saw some clumps of feathers that were wet on the ends, (like from a mouth) so I'm thinking it was either a fox or a coyote. It was at about 10:45 this morning. All of my birds were scattered. Had a hard time coaxing them back, some were stuck in the fencing from when they tried to get away, and some will not come out of the coop no matter what. I'm so frustrated! They are just now getting ready to start laying, and I'm sure this will set them back! I know that the predator will be back, just trying to find the best wat to keep it away from my birds! Does hotwire work for coyotes or foxes? the fence is standard field fence lined with chicken wire. Too large of an enclosure to cover... I'm so stinking MAD!!!
