I had just let them out of their run for a hour of yard time and was inside the house when I heard the girls clucking like mad outside, well I went running out there cause it just didn't sound right and what I thought was a chicken under a bush was actually a hawk! it was under there going after two barred rocks and one of my easter eggers, everyone else had scattered and were standing still. I screamed and cursed at that thing and finally it flew off. I gathered everyone up and checked them over. Thank God no one was hurt to badly. Polly has a couple of scratches on her comb but everyone looks to be ok, other than scared to death!! Are hawks worse this time of year with all the leaves off the trees? they didnt bother the girls this summer and now that it know there are chickens around is it more likely to come back??
