    Well went out and let the chickens out and sat hung out for a while and a red tail hawk did a fly by screaming and running chickens everywhere. One more alarm call while I was out there. Hadn't had a problem with hawks but I guess with fall coming will be an issue or at least for this one who knows what is there.[​IMG]

    Quote:I free range and hawk did a fly by again this morning. Usually the chickens would all be behind the coop in the trees but with it being cooler they are hanging out front in the open. Off to buy some string twine rope something and hang some CD's for now to see if that will help. No casualties yet but don't want any either
