Coyotes in Nob HIll

About a week ago, we had coyotes in our back yard. The killed my pet goose of 13 years and a chicken. It was at about 4am. This was not a human predator, we actually saw 2 coyotes and scared them off - a little late.Now we are caging them every night, and still let them have full access to our yard during the day.Beware!See More

"I used to have a chicken that would roost in my neighbor's tree (she got over a 6' fence).  We would have to go knock her out of the tree with a broom. "

"My small hen has gone over an almost 6 foot wall. I think the smaller breeds can fly the highest. Like stated above, keep the tips of one wing clipped and it should help."

"Thank you everyone! You made my day and greatly reduced my anxiety. Free roamers have much more nutritious eggs than even those in large coop. Now, I just have to close the holes in the fencing. Anyone know how high they can jump/fly. Seems like…"
