Just what the subject says......I notied a young bantam cochin missing at lockup last night. And realized I hadn't seen another young bantam cochin lately.......while I was letting the roosters out of their coop, a hawk swooped in and attacked. Sure seemed like it was going after my broody's baby...which it did not get (excellent broody mom)....I went and started counting the smaller birds and am now missing a blue mille fleur d'uccle pullet too. Darn it. So three birds in the last few days. I "upgraded" 4 roosters from the rooster pen into the big yard...figure they can help with hawk calls and being a "presence" in the yard. I have no way to cover my yard....its about a half acre uncovered, with large trees around the back perimeter portion. Would it help to put "tables" out for the birds to have places to go for cover? I have 3x8 panels I had made to make an easy to assemble/disassemble pen. I could put them on legs using the panel as a "tabletop" and put a few around the yard. Would that help?
