We had a bad storm and some trees went down across our back fence. The fence is solid 5 foot field fence with barbed wire strung across the top to hopefully keep coyotes from crawling over. It took us a couple of weeks to get some people out here to cut the trees off the fence and haul them off because we are just getting one storm after the other coming in off the Gulf and they cant use the heavy equipment in this rain. Now we need to repair the fence yesterday a pack of coyotes got into the chicken yard across the downed fence and got 4 of my 3-month old chicks and 5 of my adult hens. We are having another storm today rain wouldnt stop them from fixing the fence but the lightning makes it too dangerous to work in under all those trees. We have a very well built, secure chicken house and the yard is a little more than an acre, which was fenced up until that storm. The chickens have been there for 5 years now and this is the first real trouble that we've had. My question is now that the coyotes know that the chickens are there once we get the fence back up is it going to keep the coyotes out? If not is there something else I can do to keep them out? I'm really nervous about this.
