    Make yourself a good predator proof coop/run. You did do that when you decided to get chickens in Northern MN?

    I have a pack of eight wolves locally. They aren't the problem for livestock, the coyotes are. Thankfully, wolves tend to keep coyotes in check. Just build a secure coop and run, and if you are really wanting to be safe, string some hot wire on the outside of the run.

    We have one of the highest pop. of wolves in the lower 48 states. these K9's where as big as my newfoundland dog 128 lbs. My coop and run are good just worried about freeranging i have them locked up in the coop now

    The best thing to do is to keep thin in their coop and run. If you want to free range them only do it when you are home and have a gun handy.
