I know how most chicken keepers dread hawks. I am fearful for my flock from the danger they present as well. We have them around our yard all the time. In addition to being concerned for my chickens, I am also in awe of the amazing skill of most raptors and their intensity. A friend of mine shared this short video about a goshawk and I had to share it. This incredible video show exactly how skilled a hawk can be at traversing small openings at top speed. Amazing and scary. Keep this skill of theirs in mind when creating your chickens housing and yard areas.
