I lost my first chicken to a hawk a couple days ago, which got me thinking, it will be back, and also wondering if I shouldn't restock my flock with more predator resistant birds. At first I thought heavier breeds would help, but the hawk didn't take this hen away. It killed her on the ground, ate part of the neck, then left. (She was a big fat GLW.) Would it help to get some game bird blood into my flock? Would there a type of rooster that would protect the flock from a hawk? I have a rooster right now, but he's a big pansy, and not quite mature. He's a Splash Ameraucana, and is at the very bottom of the pecking order, so I don't see him being much help where predators are concerned!
