Last Sunday afternoon a hawk killed one of our Barred Rocks. The chickens were free ranging in our back yard and we were preoccupied with our neighbors. When it was all over there was a patch of feathers in the corner of the back yard, then a patch about 20 feet away and then another 20 feet from there the hawk was either standing on or beside the dead hen. I was so P.O.'ed it's just a blur. There was no blood only a bare spot where the feathers had been plucked from the breast area. I'm just wondering how the hawk killed her.
