Wanting to build a chicken tractor out of an old hay trailer. How do I keep chickens safe from hawks and still make it mobile. Raising 20-25 chickens

Having a closed in run would do it, we have a lot of easily accessible bushes for our girls and they instinctually hide when they see a hawk nearby or incoming, havent loss anyone in 6 years :)

Thanks. We may have to try that because we would like to run them in the pasture

I had some trouble with a hawk and I put a 25' x 25' blanket of aviary netting over the top of our 20'x20' pen, with a 10' two by four in the middle as a tent pole. The netting holds up the tent pole by itself.
