I now have a hawk that is apparantly not afraid of us. I took the dogs out for a romp in the yard, because the chickens were out freeranging I stayed there. I decided to bring the dogs in and as soon as I rounded up the last one a bunch of hens came running up behind me actually getting into my house and sqwaking like crazy, it was a sound I have never heard them make. My husband yelled from the kitchen that he just saw some of the hens diving behind the bushes from where he was watching from the window. I knew something was going on, but I had just been outside. It all happend so fast, I ran outside and there was a hawk sitting right over my head on the ledge of the roof, literally only a few feet over me. He took off and went up to a tree. He must have been in the yard the whole time but was waiting for me and the dogs to go in or something because he did not waste any time. We started running through the yard checking on all the girls,(we have 29 outside today) some were hiding in the coop already but the rest were hiding everywhere. The hawk swoops down over me near the coop and my husband starts yelling for me to watch out. It goes up to a different tree, the hens were all screeching and I am still trying to count them when he makes a third swoop down right over my husband and I. I mean I could see this thing's eyes. He got so close it was scary. It doesn't look like a juvenile either, I am pretty sure its an adult. I had no idea they were so brazen. Thanks the lord that the girls had the sense to hide the way they did and I had one rooster circling the coop protecting his girls. After all was said and done we found them hiding in some funny places, but at least they were safe. I hate to have to keep them in on such beautiful days but this is really unnerves me. He didn't seem scared of us at all.
