Hi All, My free range chooks are being taunted and some taken by Hawks and big black backed sea gulls is there anyway of disuading the predators??
any help appreciated
perhaps building a shade shelter where they can seek refuge away from sight? their home run is under thick forest so is fine but they enjoy roaming on the open pasture.
We like having the predator birds around as they kill the stoats, weasels, cats and rats that naturally find themselves living around the forest habitat so im not keen to shoot them..
any help as always much appreciated
