First it was one of the leghorns
Now it is the ONLY silver polish hen I had
and it has blinded a ccohin hen and i will have
to cull her.

What is worse it is doing this 200 feet from the house all three
times.

So now i am angry, hurt and dismayed.

I am not raising and taking care of my chooks for the local
bird of prey population to have a nice warm snack.

I am afraid that I am going to have to put the whole flock up now for at least 10 days. It is the only thing i know what to do.

Poor birds - it's so sad.

The first hit guaranteed the return visits, unfortunately.
I have a Cooper hawk that has a fix on my roo and hen the past several days and I have to stand over them (not getting pressing things done) or have them in lockdown in the covered run. They are not happy and I feel really bad for them but I think they're toast if I let my guard down. I think Cooper plans on nesting very nearby.
I'm so sorry your birds got hurt and killed.
