Ok. So I was sitting talking with my sister (about chickens), and I looked out the window and there I saw what looked like one of my Barred Rocks but was a chicken hawk (also called Cooper's Hawk) fly right into the chicken yard and under the pine tree (and of course, I panic). The tree is not very big, and the chickens all use it for protection since it is so low to the ground. The chickens all scramble and flap and yell, while the hawk makes 3 turns around the tree. None of my girls were hurt, thankfully, but this is the first time the hawk has come into the yard. We've had this/these hawk(s) hanging around a lot since the time we got our second flock. The first time they/it took one was last year, when it got Squeaky, one of our BRs. Then it got Buttercup, another BR. That was when we were freeranging the chickens. Now they are confined (much to their dislike) to their yard. We've put up shiny reflective things and even a scarecrow, but it obviously isn't working. And notice the only ones the hawk has taken are the Barred Rocks. We got the BRs because everyone said that they were the least likely to get taken by a chicken hawk since they look so similar. If that is true, then why have only BRs been taken by the chicken hawk? That's my problem. It just doesn't make sense. Any suggestions as to more ways to keeep hawks at bay and also as to why only my BRs are being taken will be appreciated. Thanks to all in advance!
