Our favorite hen was killed by a hawk yesterday. We've been seeing at least one around a lot recently and while we were out the girls got out and one was killed. The 2 left are still so scared today and just leave the coop to go into their run to eat and drink then go right back in to the coop. My kids are going to be devastated! We offered her body to the hawk hoping that's enough to keep it away for a while (and to maker her death not in vain). I don't know how often they need to feed but it looks like she has a nest nearby. We were surprised where the hawk killed her. She was pinned in the shed (more of a lean to) and the hawk was able to kill her but not eat her as she was stuck in between some farm equipment. We always thought they wouldn't attack in tight spaces where they can't fly out of. I'm attaching a pic of our set up to see what we should be doing differently. I still feel like they're exposed on the mesh side (the other side has the tarp pulled down and pinned to the ground) and that the hawk could get its beak through and still injure them? Also, now that it's eaten an entire chicken (bigger than it was) should I assume it won't return? Not letting my guard down, but man, we've only had them since October and have had some scares but thought we were safe.
