help! this morning DH and i were sleeping in(oops!) and had left the girls gate open last night so that they could free range all morning... we were awoken by them making a horrible ruckus- and looked out the window to see a small hawk perched on the door to the coop. the big girls were all hollering... we rushed out there and he flew away. we thought we were missing out 3 teenager EE, but one was hiding under the waterer stand, and two more emerged slowly from the depths of my tomato plants everyone appears uninjured and okay, just frazzled. i have two hens with some ROUGH tail feathers, but i dont know if it was him, or we are beginning to molt because of the season change. . . . he was very small, and our teen's were just barely smaller than him.. so i dont think he could have carried anyone off, but he could have hurt them badly. . . . we live in town, so its very weird!!! what can we do so that they can still go out without them being hunted by him!!! i need hawk advice please!!! my mom suggested a plastic owl, we will def get one of those when we head to the city on tuesday... but what else? any hawk knowlege would be greatly appreciated!
