I am having a devil of a time chasing away a sharp-shinned hawk from my chickens. It sits right above them, they squawk (sounds just like they are yelling "Hawk") and luckily my dog really runs hawks away. But it just doesn't go very far!!!! This hawk is smaller than a chicken, but still thinks chicken is on the menu. Has anyone actually had a hawk this small get a grown chicken? It normally eats small birds and up to the size of a dove. I have the chickens in the run now because I can't face another disaster today.
