    my chickens have been being killed by a coyote and now I lost someone that I love my duck Webster and I'm emotionally heartbroken I was wondering if anyone knew how to get rid of a coyote cuz I don't want him to get any more of my chickens or my other duck

    So sorry about Webster!!:hugs I don't have much advice on coyotes because we don't have them around my house.

    Sorry to hear about Webster and the best way I know to get rid of a coyote is to shoot it.

    You can trap too but then your still going to have to kill it about the only way to get rid of it. Probably more around though. I'd keep my chickens and duck locked inside a secure pen for now till you get it. Letting them roam around unprotected is just asking for trouble. Coyotes are most likely feeding young right now.

    That's what we're going to do cuz we have a pen but we like to let them free range so they can eat grass and stuff and we forgot to shut the chicken coop door last night and we left the the duck pen open by accident and the Ducks decided to go into the chicken coop and the coyote got one of my ducks

    Ok thanks for the I think we're going to put an electric layer around the chicken pen or around her whole yard so that we can still let them free range

    For now till you can figure out what is best keep them locked up and safe.

    I am sorry for your loss.
