Hawk deterrent - Page 5

Makes sense! I also heard that white birds were less of a target because they don't look like their natural food. "Striped" birds were in the "most likely to get picked off" category.

My experience has been opposite of your post.  In fact I attended a seminar where a falconer advised using a white pigeon or pullet to bait hawks so that you can get a close up view.  I must advise that it works.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.

Black or dark birds hawks won't touch unless they are in open view and they are starving
