It seems the drought is making the coyotes come closer to us. Last night at 3 AM one was making a racket right outside dd1's window and woke her and the dog up, then the dog woke us up barking. The dog stayed on alert the rest of the night and we got little sleep as a result. So far the chickens are ok. They stay in a coop at night and we let them out during the day.

Will the coyotes come get the chickens during the daytime? Is there a way to repel them, short of sitting outside with a shotgun?

We have never found a way to repel them. We did have a great pyrenese that kept them away. He would fight them. But we did learn not to keep food out side. (Dog food exspecially) We had one of those big dog feeders out side and we ended up with all kinds of critters coming up to the house.

A large dog or two will keep them back from the dogs territory, motion activated lights and alarms will also help, but this time of the year pups are leaving their mothers to find mates and hunting grounds. Yes they will steal chickens during the daytime. The only way I know to keep them away is to kill them. But hunting them will only make them nocturnal

Well, after doing some more research, I found out we're doing some things wrong. For starters, we have a big compost "dump" at the back of the property where we toss garbage that can't be fed to the chickens. We've never buried it, just left it out for the coons to eat so they will stay out of our trash. There's too much rock to bury anything, really, in our yard. Mistake #1 as coyotes will see the garbage AND the coons as food and mark our yard as their territory.

Mistake #2 is the old lady on the hill next to us always "feeds the animals" her hamburger grease and other scraps. Meat is a huge attraction for coyotes.

Mistake #3 is that we "buried" a dead chicken the last time something got a couple of them. It made off with one and we found the other and buried it. With the yard being so rocky, we only had a few inches of dirt over the carcass. Something quickly dug it up and dragged it off--quite possibly a coyote.

Boy, do I feel dumb after learning all of this! But, it looks like the compost pile will have to be put in a bin with a tight lid from now on (or else go into the trash with a tight lid) and I need to talk to the sweet old lady next door.
