No kidding. I've said before how amazing it is that I don't have predator issues living here surrounded by forest. I had a large chick, fully feathered, disappear last week. The other day the chickens all screeched and ran inside the garage and wouldn't come out for quite awhile. I was just standing by the barn watching them eat their morning scratch and saw a huge eagle swoop down over the garage, toward the barn and then into the trees along the edge of the yard. It was within 100' of me so there was no mistaking it. I've not seen eagles here before.
