I am afraid to let my one year ten month pullets (EE"S) free range. I never had a problem with my hens running away. My pullet liked free ranging so much that she would only come around to eat, then one day her sister was killed by the dog next door. I have red tailed hawks here,. the man in the feed store told me that my hens are told big for a hawk to get, too many people on this sight told me that they lost a grown hen to hawks, even a roo was killed by a hawk. Should I follow my instincts and not allow them to ever free range again?
