    Well, I was walking down to the garage to check on the chicks in the brooder, when I look to my left and see my silver sebright rooster doing a dance. Then I see a huge falcon? about 1 foot away from him almost grabbing him. I ran toward him and screamed, and luckly the falcon went away.

    I think it was a falcon. Do they have barred feathers?

    Well, anyway, I walked back to the pens, and all the sebrights followed me closely. Poor things were petrified.
