Look at this smug guy. This kid barely got his adult feathers and my chickens are twice his size. He's been coming around for months now, since he was a juvenile. He really wants to eat my girls. I cannot stress this enough, GET A COVERED RUN! If you don't have one, make one. This youngster would have killed my hens 10 times over if it weren't for their covered run. They free range occasionally and their covered run has saved them every time. Fake owls and shiny things don't deter a hungry hawk. Only cover and safety can. Small hawks can do damage as well, this hawk may be small, only slightly larger than a dove, but its talons are no joke. It's always hunting season for a hawk, keep your girls safe out there everyone! My camera is garbage, but you can see the hawk sitting on the mini coop, gears are turning in its head trying to figure out how to get to my chickens.
