There are tons of trees but since the leaves are gone they're pretty well exposed. They have a 50x50 ft area to run in. 2 guineas and 6 chickens. They have a coop and I've got tables and chairs etc that they can run under but I guess i may fashion a lean to against the fence.

In my experience pie tins wort keep hawks away unless you can melt the pit tins down into bullets.  The only thing that will work other than a physical barrier to keep hawk an guinea separate, is to force the hawks to either fear or respect you and your poultry.  Sorry.

 

Any thing that a hawk can use to pen or herd poultry into or against, like a fence, or coop is just working for the hawk.

Hi we have a lot of Hawkes and magpies here in rural New Zealand and basically they get a lot of our ducks and chicken babies when not home when we are the dogs barking at them seem to work but we pen them when we can or just make sure they can hide and run through under things

I checked with local law enforcement and it's still quite illegal to shoot them. I also love in the city so it wouldn't go unnoticed lol
