Last Saturday evening still light outside my husband and I where sitting on the back deck area when our rooster ran by screaming like a little girl and clucking he ran right into the basement thru the doggy door. So i stood up and there stood a Bald Eagle about 20 feet from us! I grabbed my cellphone to take a picture but was more worried about my animals so told DH to scare him off. Once he was gone I went to the basement to check on the rooster and he was very scared if he could talk he would of been yellin"DID YOU SEE THE SIZE OF THAT THING?" So then i went off to look for my hen and she was no where to be seen. My 9 year old son and I looked everywhere and when we thought for sure she was gone we went to go get the rooster and put him in his pen without his girl. Well once we got to his coop out from the woods came the hen running !! We where soo happy to see her. Well that all happened 3 days ago and they have a covered pen that they can go in off their coop, (but that day I let them out to run the yard) well they havent left their coop since no morning cock adoodle do;s or nothing. What should I do?? We are going to the hard ware store to get some streamer type stuff to blow in the wind to try and keep the eagle away any one have any other ideas?? I worry about my cats too!
