At about 9 in the morning I hear my mom calling so come quick because there was something in the yard. I ran out as soon as I could and there is this dog in our yard, at first we thought it was a shepherd, but it was deffiently a coyote. A healthy one too We started yelling at it and it ran into the woods, I got my cattle dog and went into the woods to scare it, plus to get her sent around. Well as I was walking through the woods I see feathers...everywhere. I went back to the yard and there were even feathers near the coop, but the weird thing is we didn't even them screetch. And I reliezed my buff laced polish rooster, my favorite bird, and my only BLP rooster, was gone. Out of all my chickens he just had to pick that one, I lost my other buff rooster a few months ago, so now I think I know where all our chickens have been going. I went in to go check on our sheep and he wouldn't even move, normally he out in the morning by the fence waiting for his food, and I found him in the barn, scared out of his mind. What will keep coyotes away? And I don't only have to worry about the chickens and ducks, but we also have sheep, dogs and cats. There has to be something we can do to get rid of it, and are coyotes normally out during the day, or is that a sign of rabies? RIP-you will be missed.
