November always seems to be bad for us and hawks, but they normally go after the call ducks. I was going out to put the ducks & chickens in for the evening yesterday when I heard lots of commotion from the birds. I went down & saw the ducks all huddled in one spot & the chickens in another. I decided to walk around to the other side of the run & saw a bird fly from the ground to a nearby tree - my full grown Blue Wyandotte was lying lifeless on the ground. I think it was a Sharp Shinned hawk, I was surprised how small it looked compared to my chicken. I can't even figure out how she was killed as I saw no blood at all - I must have interrupted it before it started eating. This was the 1st time we have lost a chicken to a hawk as they always seem more aware of hawks than the ducks. Very sad as now I'm afraid the hawk is waiting to finish the meal it missed.
