Wife alerted me, said she thought there was a drone circling the house....wasn't wearing her glasses at the time...then she heard a hawk somewhere in the backyard orchard. Went out to find a hawk on the ground, looking at my four 10 week old chooks. He took to the sky immediately, but it took a while for the chickens to come out of their frozen poses on the other side of the tractor. Never saw a hawk up close and personal like that, got within five or six feet of the little bugger. Pretty good sized bird. If I had let them free range, I would be out a chicken right now. Glad I built the tractor. Next time I will release the hound and save myself a walk.
