I have a hawk problem. Personally, I like hawks, but I don't want to have my chickens eaten! Yesterday I looked out the window and the darn hawk was PERCHED on a branch 3 feet from my chicken run! I have had the hawk swoop down 3 times in the past week and a half when the chickens are out in the yard. I have now limited the chicken's outdoor time to one hour before dusk and I always keep my dog (lab) in the yard with them. I am trying to walk outside while the chickens are out.
Does anyone have any more suggestions?

Practice the 3 S's.
Endangered species or not...around here they are free for target practice if they come after my flock. Good luck... I just had one swoop down on mine the other day, I was hanging clothes on the line at the time, lucky for the hawk the 22 was in the house or he would have met his ancestors that day.
