You are responsible about those who you tame.

 

Why does the rooster close his eyes while singing?

-Because he knows the song by heart.

The hawk will return - maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe next week.  Some roosters will attack a hawk injuring a hen others will run and hide.

If hawk local and chickens not primary target, then hawk likely to return if target something else that is reliably captured. Since hawk missed, that is incentive to try elsewhere. I have hawks come through multiple times each day but attacks on chickens not frequent as they used to be prior to involvement of dogs and fully adult roosters. I have not lost anything to hawks for over three years but have seen drama. Camera never at ready when drama occurs which really erks me.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

I have had hawks attack birds feeding right at my feet as well as hitting my aviaries while I was standing there.  Resident birds are generally 'human aware', but migratory, young or very hungry birds just don't care - they want to eat.

Like I am with current owls. Very easy to catch and reliably abundant eats with minimal risks associated with its harvest can bring them in. I have large owls coming in every night after the very abundant rodents. They catch some each night but stay for only a little bit. They have other territory maintenance behaviors that demand their attention elsewhere balance of time. They hunt as they on that.

At work we have American Kestrels and Red-shouldered Hawks working rodents around sheep / goat weather sheds on a very regular basis, especially with snow on ground. Coopers work main buildings but not as predictable. To get what you want you need younger birds near nest area and that my train for aggravating habits later.

Many complex words in your senteces but I think I get a idea.

 

Im am fantasizing how it would be to raise eagle, or at least a hawk in chicken coop.. Poult eagle raise with chicks.. To mby, they will defend a flock.. from hawks.
