Daughter came running back inside and said a big bird carried one of our girls away. So bummed because this was the hen that kinda kept to herself and never really joined in the flock but she was definitely warming up to us. I found all the other girls were in the coop hiding quite scared. I locked them in their run (wired all around) for the remainder of the day.
My son and I netted about 20x40 of their play area (fenced already) so now they are happily back outside. We've spotted the hawk once again swoop down but I suspect it saw the net because it flew away.
Do you think that the net is enough to deter the hawk or had anyone had a hawk tear through their netting to get their gals? Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
