    Have some 6 week olds outside in a temp pen, and 2 crows were trying to take off with them!!! Put up a hideaway for them so they can hide. Also put in one of my adult hens and she has been so sweet! Very suprised not pecking at all on her part although a few babies who I think might be males and challenging her =P

    YES!! They were actually picking up the babies from their pen and dropping them in the yard and bombing them!! Crazy!! I was worried about cat or something because we are in a neighborhood!

    Try throwing a fruit tree net over the run, it works up here for ravens and hawks
