Today I went out to check on our new kittens and feed the chickens at 10am ( we let them out of the coop at 8 this morning) I looked out the window and saw what looked like our EE hen Mounting our RS hen after a few moments of confusion I figured out it was a brown Chicken Hawk I ran outside Yelling "CHICKEN HAWK CHICKEN HAWK" I startled it and was only about 5' from it when it finally took off flying. My DH came running out to see what I was yelling about and Then shot up in the air with the BB gun a few times but the dang things hung around the rest of the day. The hen seems okay, She is limping a little but still moving around and scratching at the dirt. We will be keeping them in there small pen till we can think of something to do. It's illegal to shoot them in Iowa. I hate keeping them penned up, but its for there own good. Any ideas?????? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
