That's what I felt like screaming out this morning while sitting near the exercise pen watching the chicks enjoy a nice leafy salad. I feed wild birds up front so they tend to surround my house until I put out their seed. All the sudden they all left, I look up and there is a huge hawk planted on a utility pole about 50 feet above my head. When I stood up he flew off, almost as if he hadn't noticed me sitting here quietly typing away on my laptop. I had to put the chicks in so I can finish my watering without looking up every 2 seconds, lol they are mad and pecking at the run door to get out. I hadn't intended on leaving them unsupervised in the play pen, ever, but I see that I have to pretty much be up and right around them to stop a flying attack huh. I can't think of any way to alter the current play pen to cover it on top. It's only temp anyway until I've gathered supplies for something more "advanced" and preditor proof..... BTW, do hawks always give out a "warning sound" when they are around? Or did mine just not pass the "how to sneak up on your prey" class in hawk school?
