Hi all! I'm new to chickens! I have a different twist on the hawk question and will try to make this brief. I am currently planning to have ~3-5 hens and keep them in a large [150 sq ft +] area, covered with poultry netting during the day. Coop at night of course. They will not free range unless I am right there [due to fear of predators]. For those of you that do something similar, do hawks still hang around your property more than before your had chickens? Or do they realize they cannot get to them and move on? The reason I ask is I have other wildlife in my yard that I have rehabbed, and I do not want to put them in any undue or extra danger by having chickens. I hope this makes sense. Thanks much!
