    Does the color red deter hawks?


    A customer just called me to ask me if the color red deter hawks. Says the lady he buys Silkies from swears by it... I've never heard of such a thing. I will say that I had a red scarecrow up for a while and the hawk didn't seem to be too afraid....

    Very doubtful- I think you're going to have to come up with more serious protection! [​IMG]
