I've been having a hawk hang around lately. I'm pretty sure it made off with a baby early last month. So, all the babies are no longer allowed to free range. I was trying to 'train' the hawk that there is no food here.....and hoped he would move on to the woodland critters instead. Well, I guess mr hawk got a little too hungry and tried to make off with a full size silkie hen! The hawk tried to lift her and kept flopping back down and trying to fly up. I saw it out the window. I hollered for the dog to 'get the hawk' and we both went running out the door. We weren't even halfway across the yard when my FBCM roo came trucking over and spurred that hawk right in the back! The hawk let go and flew off with the dog running into the woods after it barking her head off. The hen ran to me and practically flew into my arms! I have never seen Copper attack another animal before! He sure earned some extra treats today! The hen doesn't seem to have any serious injuries, just a slight cut next to her beak. She's in the house with me resting. I have never seen anything like this! Anyone else have a roo attack a hawk?
