I guess the juvenile red tails are trying to make it on their own now and chicken is on the menu. Last night I was out picking tomatoes when I heard my hens explode. You know the sound of wings beating and lots of screaming. I look over and their sits a red tail on the fence post. My run is covered so he could not get in. I stood and watched just to see what he would do, to see if he would jump on the netting and try to get in. My poor hens were terrified the ones that did not make it into the coop where behind the coop and one by one they made a mad dash for the pop door. Sort of reminded me of family making a mad dash for the car in a rain storm. I watch for about a minute and then walked towards the hawk and the brave little thing didn't fly off until I was within six feet. Unfortunately, this morning right as I was walking out the door I looked out the window towards the chicken coop and he was back sitting on the same pole. I sent my lab/chow mix out and he flew off. I will be nervous all day now, I believe the netting I have over the run is strong enough but you never know.
