I now have 4 coops full of upset chickens. 56 chickens in all. Ever hear 56 upset chickens all at the same time? They are just bawking their fool heads off. I heard all the commotion and ran out to see what was wrong. Got there just in time to see the hawk swooping down and hitting the chicken wire. This must have been his 2nd attempt, because I got to watch the whole thing and the girls were already upset. In one of the small coops, I found 4 girls smashed into one nesting box. I got them all shoo'ed out and tried to calm the others. No luck. They are all in a tizzy. Lucky for them I had not let any of them out this morning. Usually one of the coops would have been free ranging but I had them all in their own coops with covered runs. Now I'm afraid to let them out. They go all over the yard and have never had anything try to get them before. Guess I'll have to load the shotgun. Don't want to hurt anything, but I can't have something tormenting the girls either.
