I let my pullets free range only when there is someone around hoping that the hawks won't get them. But yesterday I noticed a red tailed hawk sitting on a telephone wire (less than 50 to 75 feet away) and were staring right at my pullets. After a few minutes, the hawk flew away. Maybe due to the fact we never faced our back to the hawk and pullets. I didn't put the pullets into the coop because I was afraid while rounding them up the pullets would scatter and that would be it. Today, I kept the pullets in the run/coop but how long do you think would be enough time to not let the pullets free range so the hawk would hopefully "forget"/"gives up" about my pullets.
