    Hi guys. I'm trying to figure out what happened to my birds. I had 2 pullets about 8 weeks old. I only had 3 birds to begin with. Just one young rooster remains. So is it common that a hawk would get the pullets and not mess with the rooster? He's pretty small too. I am going to build a nice inclosed coop before getting any new birds, but was wondering if there is a certain breed of chicken that is hardy against preditors? Like if I get bigger chickens will the hawks not be able to carry them off in the first place? I am very heart broken and wish so bad I had my girls back. Well thanks for any feed back in advance, Heart broken in TN [​IMG][​IMG]
