Saw my chickies dive bombed a second time yesterday in their first month out. Red tail hawk, they are always circling somewhere up there. They scattered for cover, She and I yelled at it. It stopped on the roof about 10 feet up and looked down at us, like "Yeah, what are you going to do?" If I've seen it twice it must have happened more than that. They free range the yard, about a quarter acre. Lotta trees and bushes, like there's no spot in the yard where I can grow tomatoes or other sunlovers, so they have lots of cover and they spend most of their day under something scratching away. They don't expose themselves very much in the open. Sometimes I walk out and I can't even find them. I'm glad they've got the instincts even at only 13 weeks. Hawks are about the only threat here, most of the other potentials stay clear of the yard because of the doggies. What I've read seems to indicate that the threat diminishes as they get to be full size. I've never seen a hawk flying with anything larger than a squirrel but I have seen them dive on rabbits. I can't imagine one carrying off a full grown rabbit off though. Any truth to the idea that the chickens will be safer when they are bigger?
