    Yeah I totally agree... I don't advocate feeding wild animals. that's why I threw rocks lol.

    The same place where they wait for my chicks is the same spot all the squirrels live!

    Do you think if I let me dog loose on them, would he catch them?

    I don't want the dog to catch the coyotes, but I am thinking it would scare them pretty good...

    Most coyotes would easily whoop a dog that ain't trained for running them. With all that said our coyotes are 40-50 lb. not sure how big yours are. The German shepherd should scare em off.

    Now this is sort of interesting although you guys are talking about very different kinds of coyotes. Jshubins are decidely smaller and easier to manage, and real coyotes..

    Well according to the biologists that know everything. The coyotes in the northeast have supposedly bred with wolves. They are on average 10 lb or so heavier and some much more than that. Some say they have bred with feral dogs too. Who knows.
