I have been reading posts on a raptor site and everyone keeps saying hawks won't disturb anything above 4lbs... I just caught a hawk eating one of my chickens yesterday afternoon. She was a silkie so not very large. This has happened once before last summer so I did not worry about it much as the hawk never returned. However, later yesterday afternoon I found the same hawk sitting on a doorway to the chicken coop trying to come up with the courage to go in!!! My remaining 7 chickens are all large, rhode island reds etc, and they were inside, terrified. The hawk flew away as soon as I walked out. But all evening, and all this morning I can hear the hawk scream! And it is constantly flying over my yard, it actually low-flew right over me as well which I think is pretty unusual for a human shy bird like a hawk. I have the chickens locked up which I never normally do during daytime, but they are not even clamoring to get out like usual, they are just cowering in their building. And my two 60lb lab mixes are freaked out as well.... They won't go to the backyard! They're fired! What can I do to make this hawk go away??? I have seen hawks before but this seems much larger and bolder than any others. I would really appreciate suggestions, Thanks!
