I have had my girls for 2 years now and have never had a problem with hawks. My girls are allowed to freerange in the backyard from around Noon til dusk. Yesterday the girls seemed to be xtra loud, and cackling more than usual. I let them out at Noon and heard them cackling several times in the afternoon. Early in the evening I went to gather eggs and found a HAWK feather next to the coop. Best I can figure is he was trying to get the girls in the morning before they were out and lost a feather trying to get in the coop. I am afraid to let the girls out today for fear he is still around waiting. Does anyone have any suggestions for detering hawks?
