A hawk almost carried off my daughter's light brahms bitsy. The one she is kissing in do you kiss your chickens. We have never seen hawks here. and our yard is almost completely covered by an old oak tree. I didn't think they would come down under the cover like that. But it was right on our lawn on top of her. If my daughter hadn't heard the chickens screaming and run out there, we wouldn't have her right now. I am so overcome with fear and emotion. I am not handling this very well. The girls are all hiding under a huge bush right now and terrified. I got Bitsy in and she has no injuries. I guess we are going to have to find a way to enclose an area for them. Their coop is totally secure, but I can't imagine how we are going to cover the yard???? Any suggestions???? Added: Can a hawk fly off with a chicken???? Bitsy is only 11ish weeks old but being a brahma she is pretty big. Will it come back now that it knows we have chickens????
