So yesterday i had a sharp shin hawk fly directly into a steel reinforced weilded cage. He injured his wing and we figured by the time he hopped out into the pasture that would be the last we saw of him. Today I got off the phone with a lady after sealing the deal on 2 silkie roosters and 3 hens. the last part of our conversation was about hawk attacks and I stated its best I just get them out of here anyway there the only small birds I have thats not safe around here. I hang up the phone and head outside to Collect the silkies for the trip to the city. I get to the brooder barn and in an empty coop I see white feathers everywhere. At a closer inspection I see a silkie laying dead on the ground the blood still pouring out of her beheaded body. I grab a hoe thinking well its fresh Looks like a coon or a skunk and I slowly walk around the box coop to beat the life out of the said predator my search comes up empty. I figure it got away maybe heard me coming. i bend down infront of the coop and pick the silkie up i am infront of the door and I just happen to look up just in time to see a hawk fly off the roost inside the coop and straight at me. He nailed me in the chest then I kicked the coop door shut on him. what a odd day. all I can say is thank God I had 2 shirts and a pull over on.
