we have real open field here, and always saw hawks. i used to wait to let me chickens out until 3pm or after, seemed to be when the hawks went home for the night. the past week or two its been ridiculous, they are everywhere! so many of them! is there a reason they would suddenly be around so much? even until dusk.. my chickens arent that new here, been here for a year now so its not like they just realized i had them. im affraid to free range now! i know theres always risk but i feel like im asking for it. is there any way to make them go away? i know how people put a owl statue to keep barn birds away, anything to do for hawks?
