Beartracker’s Animal Tracks Den
Not a happy find for you and the chicks.
Oh dear. I hope your chickens will be okay.
They will be fine, coop will keep them safe. 🙂
Yep you have an unwanted visitor I’d say…
Uh..oh! Seen that before… Sounds like you are doing everything you can to keep your flock safe.
Oh dear! I hope your chickies stay safe! It is so dang stressful keeping them alive! I have nightmares all the time about predators… grrrr… if only everyone didn’t like the taste of chicken so much! 😦
Beamer’s the best method to keep a coyote at bay. Donks hate coyotes and will go out of their way to kill them. Donks are used in the eastern US for this.
Oh I know, he is great at letting me know they are here… he has an absolute fit. lol
Egad!! That print is plain as day! No mistaking that one…
I know, right? Thanks to the internet! lol
That’s a big one too! Yikes!
How do you keep them away?
I don’t think you can! The best way I know of is light. I put up a big motion light near my coop, so far it’s worked. The resident donkey here also is a big help, he lets me know BIG TIME when there is a predator here. LOUD LOUD LOUD! Before I had chickens I didn’t mind the coyotes coming here to visit the horse’s water troughs. Now I have water out on the front property, hoping they will choose the easy access over jumping a 7 foot block wall. Been pretty successful.
Oh wow, I hope the light and donkey keeps working!!
