    Where are you from Waves? You should put your location in your profile. It's always interesting to see people from other places. I think dogs can be trained but you have to have the time and the patience to train them. Some people are very good at training their dogs. I thought I was a...

    Red Tailed Hawk

    I wish that were true. Mine were all free and yet something got to the ones that even flew over the fence. I'm sure it was a fox. They could not outrun that fox.

    Lost a Rooster Today - Graphic!

    Ouch...hope she gets better soon. Do you have Vetericyn? That stuff is a spray and heals wounds really fast. When Mable's skin was ripped open by the raccoon that stuff worked really well.

    Red Tailed Hawk

    The only chicken I ever had that was killed by a hawk was a Polish chicken. Her name was Ivy. We really loved her...but even with clipped wings she flew out of her protective area inside the barn. :rolleyes: I'm sure she couldn't see the hawk with her hat.

    @BigBlueHen53 Where do you order your birds? I saw some online and they were $50 a chick..wow :rolleyes: and I was wondering if there were cheaper options or if that is just the price you pay for online birds.

    Encounter with a Great Horned Owl

    I was just at Menards in New Albany and there was a red-tailed hawk circling the parking lot. It was so close overhead I was able to see it very clearly, but was shocked that it was in New Albany, in what I consider the city.

    Hawk attacked my chickens today.

    To be honest, if I had a gun in my hand and a hawk flew down and was attacking my hen, my protective instinct would kick in. I don't normally walk around with a gun in my hand though. :caf

    Red Tailed Hawk

    I'm no hawk expert but every red-tailed hawk I've ever seen is rather big. Big enough to say whoa...but maybe you have a juvenile. Red shouldered hawks are smaller and they never bothered my chickens in 13 yrs of living right next to the woods. And I don't think hawks have a preference for color.

    How to get rid of mud in the out door run

    The hand tools we have to do that are heavy and cumbersome to use. This is the only one i know of besides an auger to use with a tractor which I don't have.
