my man has assured me the buzzard that has claimed this area for him and his g/f will not eat my chickens...they only eat worms and dead things...yet ive just been out in the fields and found one pile of chicken feathers and three piles of dove/pigeons feathers/bones. all at the base of the big tree the buzzards hang out in.

do they go for living prey or just already dead ones??
The information I have is that they SELDOM attack healthy prey animals. Due to their status as a raptor, there isn't a lot you can do to get them removed. IIRC you need a permit to even harass them.

While I can not officially recommend or condone it, SSS is an option.

They eat chickens, dead ones! We have red headded vultures and Black vultures. The black ones are more aggressive and will eat on an injured animals. I'm not sure what you have in your country.
If it doesnt move fast enough they will eat it
and that goes for anything
Hang on a sec- Spish, I have a friend in Scotland (you know her

What she calls a "buzzard" is what we in the US call a HAWK. So please verify if you have a hawk, a buzzard or a vulture.
