I have had no problems with predators then.. it happened. They found me. I lost 3 birds in four days... one right in front of me! I've had a super huge red-tailed with a wingspand matching mine and I woke up to this little guy wanting to play with my birdies early the other morning If you hear a ruckus, go outside and cannot find your birds... they are hiding from this guy. After the first attack, I kept mine up for a few days thinking it had moved on. Within minutes of my rosecombs being out, I heard my cock sound the alarm and they all went bananas. I found them huddled under a bush. I scoured the trees and there it was hunting them!!! I clapped my hands and screamed and it took off.. just to the next tree. I rounded them up and cooped them up and they've been up every since. May try again in a couple weeks.
