Unwanted Visitor

A couple of weeks ago Ron spotted a coyote in the back field, we've seen coyotes out back before. This morning when going to collect eggs I noticed large tracks all around the coops and yard. I followed them to see where they went and where they came from. I followed them through the field and had to stop tracking them when they disappeared behind the neighbors wood pile and down into the gully and woods. The tracks were all over the front yard, side yard and back yard so he was exploring the entire area. Our runs and coops are very secured so nothing happened to the chickens or turkeys. We have a trap that we can set out but first need to find out if it is legal to do so. I don't want or need any coyote hanging around this close to our house. He has plenty of fields and woods to roam without roaming my yard.


  1. I am so glad you are back to posting on the blog! I love to hear about your life with the chickens, turkeys and Amish. I'm glad you weren't trapped in the coop too long, that would freak me out! Keep on blogging!

    1. Thanks so much for your encouragement. I am trying my best to blog at least every other day.
