I went to lock up the flock yesterday and noticed that about 1/2 of them were missing. I started looking around and saw something move in the gully. I assumed it was a chicken and started over towards it and it was a large hawk that flew off. I investigated and it had killed my EE rooster I just got, but I've still got 5 hens and 1 rooster missing. Would a hawk kill that many in one day? I've had a few go missing last week, but I assumed they were all from my neighbor's dog that got out because he called me about it and apologized because it brought one home. It's been a rough week for my chickens. I guess I need to leave them locked up for a week or so and hope the hawk looses interest. I've noticed a lot of hawk posts recently, is it the season for hawk kills?
