I purposely feed my damaged and overly dirty eggs to the local murder of crows. The crows in return chase off hawks and tend to dive bomb the fox if it comes around what they seem to deem their territory. Now when I went to research if other chicken keepers utilized their local crows in this manner all of found were articles on how to protect your chickens and their feed from crows. I have never had any problems with the crows attacking my chickens or eating their food. I've never even seen any of them land my backyard where my chickens are kept. Has anyone else found crows to be helpful in detouring other predators?
