    Hawk behavior qeustion

    I lost two of my RIR chicks to hawks. I put plywood about 12" (16" on the back side, under the coop) tall all along the bottom of the chicken tractor, covered the top of the chicken wire run with a venetian blind, and hung the food and water away from the edges of the run and coop. Hawks hunt by...

    Coffee's ready...

    Beautiful Florida morning here. Sipping coffee thinking about the next coop to build. Thinking that I need another chicken tractor for some meat birds. Just let the girls and Cogburn out. He is a faithful watcher of the flock. Off to work. My girls will be waiting when I get home. Have a great day.
