Hi! My name is Carolyn and I live in Alabama. I am a relatively newcomer to raising chickens and loving every minute of it unless it involves loosing one of them! I have an Easter Egger, a Golden Cuckoo Marans, a Black Copper Marans, a black silkie and a lavender frizzle with some dutch bantam in her. As of a week ago I also had a Buff Orpington and as of yesterday I had a beautiful Red Star. We are having a major issue with hawks all of a sudden. Our coop and run is very predator proof or so we thought. A hawk ripped off the screen on the main door which is pretty high up so I'm not at all sure how he managed that with nothing to stand on but he did and he killed the red star and drug her up and over several barriers to get her outside. That's when I spotted him. He is coming back constantly so of course I'm on guard now until we can get some metal wiring installed. Any advice on how to make them go away?
