So Sunday we let our 8 week old chick out into the yard like we do lost of days. Well we got a little to relaxed and went inside to get ready for church and I look out the window to see a Hawk has one of the chicks (The kids and Wifes Favorite of course). So we learned a good life lesson about the circle of life, and are much more careful going forward. But my question is, Once the chickens are full grown how much danger does a Red Tail Hawk pose? Or yard is not large and in a city near the coast in California, some trees but none that are large enough to cover the whole yard. We do have lots of small trees and bushes and hedges for cover. The one that got caught was crossing the lawn. We were planning to let then out each day to have free run of the yard, but will they be safe?
