We were eating dinner around 6:30, and my 4 y.o. was talking up a storm. In the midst of it all, I heard a very strange noise- like an alarm squawk. I run to the kitchen window to see a Goshawk on the ground! I ran out around the hosue ASAP, meeting my alarm-squawking NHR who's looking in the direction of the back of the house. I careen around the corner, to NOT see the hawk. I was convinced for a second it took my other SS hen. I smacked my hands and away it flew from a corner of the house that I could see because of a large honeysuckle tree/bush. Then, I see a few feathers on the ground and am thinking the worse. Then I heard my sweet hen cluck. She was hiding underneath the bush. While I was running out to scare the hawk away, she had gone under the bush and was playing ring-around-the-rosey with the hawk. It took me a little while to get her out. She was making an odd chattering sound. Poor girl. Then I picked her up and checked her out, no blood or anything. Thank goodness!! So, the dog needs to stay outside more and the girls are staying in for a few days. I hope the hawk forgets about her!! This is the first time since we got them a few moths ago that we've had any hint of a predator. Although we have foxes around here, there are so many mice, plus the dog has chased them, that they seem to steer clear. I can only hope!
