We are in suburban Cincinnati, Glendale. We have 11 hens, silver wyandottes and New Hampshire Reds, the Roo is a wyandotte. Today my wife let them out to free range, and almost immediately a Red Tail Hawk dive bombed the flock! The girls knew there was trouble and they bolted for the safety of a stand of Norwegian Spruce. Rupert, the Roo, was running for the shelter trees, calling the girls to him. After the hawk made her dive, the rooster decided to head for safer shelter (or closer to feed) in a grouping of ornamental grasses. As the flock made their run a juvenile hawk made his attack. The roo went CRAZY. Between herding the girls to safety and offering a distraction to the predator bird he was a master multi-tasker. My wife was running around trying to distract the hawks, but I received a text from her that said, "S***!! The hawks aren't scared of me!!" Everybody made it to shelter in safety, and I suspect we will face another blitz, but I hope the shelter in the yard, and the leadership of the rooster will provide adequate protection. Does anybody have any other suggestions for managing a hawk and her family?
