I still have chicks at this moment; but then again, we want to make sure our coop design is going to be completely predator resistant. Here in Connecticut, we have a lot of red tailed hawks. At one point, we had tons of wild turkeys, and as soon as the hawks appeared, the turkeys disappeared.
So let's get to the point. I was wondering, if anyone has any good methods to keeping hawks out. We are using a run, but I have heard stories from some of my already chicken owning friends that hawks can get inside the run if not built properly. I just want to make sure an accident doesn't occur.
If you have any methods, please add a comment below. Thanks!
We also have 2 neighbors with outdoor cats, and seeing how they attempted to kill a nest full of robins, I can only imagine what they would do to our chickens.
