    Anyone have troubles with eagles? We have two that I have seen around lately. They are beautiful, but I am worried for my flock. Just wondering what I can expect. Any suggestions?

    I live in southeast Texas and I have them here they never bother my birds and seem to prefer the fish in the reservoir running in the front of my place.

    No fish close to us. I'm sure they are eating rabbits and mice and such. Just hoping they don't get a taste for chicken!

    On the MN prairie.
    We have two pair that nest near our place, and we have never had a problem with them. Not only do eagles eat fish and small game, they also eat carrion.
