Coopers HAwk killed one of my girls on Sunday..... RIR. 2 years old. I heard them all squawking frantically outside... and ran out. To my dismay there was a Coopers Hawk sitting on top of my girl. She was dead. feathers everywhere. He didn't get a taste as I missed the kill by seconds I'm assuming. but stayed perched in the tree eyeballing me as I removed my beloved RIR. I've let them free range all day for 2 years now, but now live in terror. NOTE: my wife wanted chickens, NOT ME, but as with any pet you grow attached, and of course I have somehow become in charge of all their upkeep, from food to coop cleaning. I don't blame the hawk, he's just being a hawk. but it is truly a horrifying experience even for me who did not want anything to do with chickens. Being winter I'm sure food is scarce for the hawks and the chickens an easy target I'm sure. I will have to be very cautious setting them loose, as I have no run for them. Poor girl. I can only blame myself I guess... and can't get the image out of my mind. Just needed to vent.
