To make a long story short: I have 4 groups that need to be separated, and only 3 pens, and everyone MUST be contained because. . . HAWKS. EVERYWHERE. I don't know if they are having a raptor meeting, family reunion, or there is a dope concert about to go down, but I have seen at least 5 separate red-tail hawks today, and there are kestrals and even an osprey???? swooping around. My groups: 2 cockerels. They aren't terrible and *could* go in the big coop, but they have been mounting the pullets a lot, and not all of the girls are ready to be mounted. Broody with 3 chicks: Has been fencelined with all the other groups, not integrated yet. 8 pullets, laying or point of lay. 6 young pullets that everyone picks on when confined. MUST be alone. I have a hospital pen that I am currently keeping the 6 littles. It is not ideal, but they are being sold soon, so it isn't the end of the world. Broody is in a 4x4 coop with attached run. Pullets are in the coop and the boys. . . I don't know what to do with the boys. They are currently loose, and TERRIFIED. They can't get into the coop, they can see and hear the hawks, and so are just hiding VERY QUIETLY under the coop or porch, and at night they hide in my porch. This isn't working for anyone! I am trying to decide if I could introduce broody into the big coop with her chicks, and tuck the boys into the small coop. Everyone has been getting alone on the separate sides of the fence, and I have no worries that momma can defend her chicks, but I am also uncomfortable with introducing them so soon. They are only 3 weeks old, and broody was NOT a member of the flock prior. I could just hang on until I sell the little babies. . . But the hospital pen is really not big enough for 2 birds any length of time, and I don't know how long these hawks are going to stick around! What would you do!?
