I've had a few run in's with hawks this year. One got a chicken, another was not successful because they were in the covered run at the time. Today the guineas started having fits when I check it out I see a hawk flying over. It went into the woods with me yelling at it and waving my arms. It kept circling over the coop. The chicken were all hiding under an old jeep and in the coop. It had no intention of leaving until my husband came out with the bottle rockets. The hawk decided it was time to leave!
