    Coyotes! How do I keep them away from my chickens without spending a lot? Can't use guns where I'm at.

    Do you pasture range or free range your chickens? The differences free range means there's still inside the run and passed your range means that they're running around outside the run basically. If you pass your range, you can purchase predator urine such as mountain lion and wolf. If you spray it around the perimeter it will deter the coyotes from coming in pasture area. If you're free range them, put a skirting of hardwire around the bottom of your run. It's best to have it running at least two feet up and one foot buried under the ground at an angle because coyotes will dig under the fence to get to their prey. Both options pretty inexpensive. I do both because I both pasture range and free range.
