How do you go about getting a permit to shoot a hawk? I have a coopers hawk in my yard who killed one of my hens on the 1st. Before this he also attacked my flock but only got feathers (i didnt realize it was a hawk at this point i thought it was a stray cat coming for cat food i threw out to the girls) and last week he ripped the comb off of my buff orpinton (again i just thought she had got it stuck on something but now it all adds up). Now everyday the hawk comes in my yard and stands in front of my run waiting for my hens to come out. He also perches on top of the run and now all of my hens are so afraid they stay in the coop all day and egg production is almost non existant since this hawk has been terrorizing them. Today we are building a secondary run so the girls have access to grass but it won't be quite as secure as our current run. I'm really upset that my girls can no longer free range and hide in the coop all day. Had anyone gotten a permit and how hard is it? I live in delaware.
