**cross posted in Coops and Predators--looking for as much input and tried & true suggestions as possible!!** We have our first flock of chickens ever--and are loving being chicken owners! Chickens are 7-weeks old and have been out in their coop for 2 weeks. They have a 10'X10' coop, a fully covered 12'X8' chain link dog run (with chicken wire on top) and a 40'X40' electrified poultry netting pasture around the whole thing. We REALLY, REALLY want pastured chickens and were hoping to add another 164' section of PoultryNet fencing in the spring for them. The PoultryNet has successfully kept out all 4-legged animals, which is great, since we have coyotes, foxes, raccoons, dogs, etc., but a hawk got one of our Barred Rocks chicks yesterday. What can I do to keep them away? Would be willing to get other small animals to keep in the pen--guinea hens, small goats, etc., but am not sure if I want to get an outside Livestock Guardian Dog, though there is a Great Pyrenees rescue organization near me. Short of covering 1600sf with bird netting and making the whole set-up a pain to move, what else can I do? Can I use rubber bullets or bean bag bullets to scare them off but not harm them? I realize they can't be killed. I am going to take a photo today to save in case I need to send it to the DEC. Think they would do anything since this hawk is a known livestock killer?
