I am wondering if anyone who has experience with hawks getting their chickens happens to know how persistent the birds can be. I am 95% sure that it was a hake who got my 6 week old girlie. Once I discovered the chicken I looked through many boards here and saw that CDs help deter the hawks. Although my chicken run looks slightly like a voodoo camp I think it is doing its job! The day I hung the CDs up the hawk came back three times- each time all my chickids ran to hide! I realize I can't stand guard of my chickids every hour of every day. So I am wondering if anyone who has had a problem with hawks in the past can provide insight to the hawks persistence. I haven't seen the hawk in 2 days and I am not sure if that is because I have been on guard or if it's because my CDs are working.
