That's funny! Well, not funny that you have to deal with them, but funny for me to even imagine!
Can you get a small yappy dog that might just bark them away, maybe the DW wouldn't be afraid of? I'm glad they don't mess with your chickens though.
And bantam chickens are alot less intimidating, although some can be much more b**chy! But they can't do damage, even if they do attack.
Ah, i can't be pandering to DW's phobias of anything thats not a human being. Anything freaks her out (mostly me). Bantams would make very good hawk feed here - larger birds are slightly less appealing, but the hawks do try now and again. Any dog sends her running for the hills (maybe i should get 2? )
