I was looking at a Great horned owl wind spinner to scare a hawk away. Do these things work?
Not sure, but I heard if you hang up CDs it will through off a hawks aim.
I've had dozens of cd's all over my yard. All it does is drive ME crazy. Hawks didn't care.
Yes, I have tried the CD's, string across the coop. Didn't work.
Nice resource FarmerRob! If I end up having to get netting, I know where to get it now!
CD's dont work, unless maybe you had a hundred of them! I had about 10 hanging from the trees and bushes but the last hawk kill I had was right under the CD, on a sunny day. Please don't fall into that false sense of security.
Maybe, I could put Justin Beber in the CD player and scare him away!!! Just kidding. I do like him. Beber was the only name I could think of that everyone would know
I just had an issue with a Juvie red-tailed hawk that found an easy meal while learning to hunt. It killed two of my hens within 1 week. So after a little reserach I ended up stringing 1100 feet of vinyl coated clothesline in a spiderweb formation and then I tied hundreds of colored flagging (orange, pink & yellow since hawks see color) onto the clothesline. It looks like a 3-ring circus in the run (it has no top). I also purchased a 3-d almost life-like coyote decoy that I move around 1 - 2x daily. There is constant movement and activity in the run now that the flagging is blowing, the clotheline is strung within 4 -5 of each other and Bolt the coyote is on duty. No deaths for several weeks now...
