Ok still can't believe what just happened!! Background info. About a two months ago a hawk got my light brahma hen. I let them free range until then with never an issue. After the attack put netting up over run and nothing since then. Today my contractor was here building me a 24' x 12 run for my remaining 6 hens. So I go to the shed to get something and my other light brahma followed me. I'm standing there opening the shed and wham!!!! A very large hawk slams into me and Ursala. I didn't even know what was happening it was so fast hard and silent. Just swooped right around shed. She must have seen it at the last second cause she made it into shed but lost a lot of feathers. I kicked at it since it was basically on my leg!! The worker was stunned too. I put all girls in the very small covered run and went in to change my underwear !! My contractor is going in for surgery and can't finish til March!! I put netting over the finished frame. I hope that will keep it out. It was a big f#^**in hawk. I've read other post where hawks have been brazen just never thought would happen to me in NJ suburbs. That happens out in the country in other states etc ......yeah right !!!
