My little blue laced hen Ellie barely survived a hawk attack the other day. The poor thing is traumatized. Heard screeching while I was inside, I ran out and there a red-tailed hawk had her pinned with its talons. I grabbed the closest thing I saw and threw it, which made it drop the hen and leave. Thankfully she's not too injured. A few minor scratches and a bunch of missing feathers, but it's nothing that won't heal. She's still too afraid to leave the coop, but with time I think she'll be fine.
So many are lost to hawks and other predators it is good to read that one was saved.
