Have a hawk chilling around that is not afraid of humans or my husky. Had my chickens out of the run in my backyard with a friend. All the squirrel were being loud so knew something was up. The hawk came over the tree and swooped down at us. Chickens are on lock down for the next few days. I tried to get it to leave, even have my husky out but it does not care. Hawks are rare in the area due to a large crow population. I dont think traditional control methods will help much here. But any advice is great.
