    I'm interested! I've got the other critters covered. Haven't found a solution for hawks. Would be nice if the chicken would eat the evidence also.

    Not sure I'd want to have to put on falcon-handling gloves every day just to collect the eggs. [​IMG]

    My favorite hawk protection is a large, covered run. It works better than dogs, geese, donkeys, etc. [​IMG]

    Someone just posted they picked up some pyranese (sp?) pups that chased off hawks.

    I had a hawk try to take a chicken awhile back. Some roos took care of the problem. Nature has a way of taking care of itself. I did lose one roo and another is still limping.
