Black Vultures have been terrorizing my chickens for days.Has anyone else had this problem? They are staking out the flock and watching for an opportunity. I have had to keep my chickens in from foraging with them this determined. I used to think they only ate dead animals, not so! My first experience was a few years ago.The flock was alarming like crazy and when I went down to see what was wrong I saw something I'll never forget. A huge vulture was on the pasture fence staring down our large, protective Lamancha goat. He was ready to spring on the vulture and the entire flock was huddled behind him. I chased him off with a lot of screaming and a rake raised above my head. This time they may be more hungry as they are super persistent.This morning I ran one off just outside our run on a low branch. Does anyone have tips for running them off? It is against the law to shoot them.
