Hawks keep killing my chickens. Weds i discoved a horrible scene 4 dead chicks and one i had to put down from a broke leg puctured threw the skin. Thats 5 chicks. Thursday i had 2 mpre dead chicks. Same thing froday. Threw this hole thing i was putting up tarps galor to stop it from flying in. Friday i put the 9 remaing chicks plus our 2 adult bantams in an enclosed pen. They were all fine this morning. I came home check on them. 2 dead bantams INSIDE a cage. And one dead adult. Thats 12 chickens. This pain is imberalble. The pen is an old dog pen under a tree but our friend cut too much tree away. Theres no easy way to cover the hole pen. Plus we dont have the money at the moment. Im dying inside. Its not going to stop is it? I cant pen up 25 adult chickens. I only have dog crates as night time roosts for those who dont sleep in the tree (we have a shed our friend who is going to put it together is in basic training right now) what do i do? I now have 8 chickens dead and mutilated in my trash can. Plz help me. Im at my witts end.
