Hi! We have 5 hens and one rooster. They are about 3.5 months old. We also have a nest of hawks behind our house in the trees. You can hear them screeching all day. I think they are red-tailed hawks. We used to let the chickens out all day and put them in at night. But the hawks started landing in the yard and on our fence so now we must keep them confined until we figure something out. It's illegal to take care of the hawks. So my question is will the RIR ever reach a size/age that will be too large for the hawks to be interested in? We really like letting them roam the yard. And I think the chickens really miss be able to run around too!
