I have been on here reading alot of your post after trying to find out what to do about hawks. We have saw them for weeks now. Early in the morning you know when they are around cause my husbands chickens get so loud. I have learned when I hear this to run because the hawk is around. We have chased him off at least 3 times a day. The chickens are caged. Yesterday I was on the phone for about 20 minutes and got off and went to the back door to see if everything was okay. When I opened the door I heard the most awful sounds. The chickens were in a panic. When I got to them I saw the hawk fly off. One of the chickens was lying up against the fence not moving while the other two in the cage were standing over it making the most awful sounds. There was a little spot of blood on the chicken and I kept thinking it was just probably stunned. When I got up close to the cage I was horrified. The whole head was gone. Nothing but a spot of blood left. I was so sick. These are my husbands chickens and I have never had much to do with them but I was so sick I could have cried. Apparently, after reading alot of your post there is nothing we can do. I am to the point I am afraid to leave the house thinking this will happen again. I have learned this is what hawks do but it sickens me. I can't get those sounds out of my head.
