But what else can I do about Chicken hawks. They stole my RIR about 30 minutes ago I had the run door open while filling the waterer (about 20 feet away) and while I filled it up, he stole my baby It's illegal to kill them, but is it different if they are carrying off your pet? He dropped her, but she wasn't in good shape. We took her to the vet and he said it'd be best to euthanize her... Mom says we can get another, but it's not the same. What can I do, we plan to build a larger run now. It was only like 2 minutes. I knew they were around, I've seen then standing on the coop before, but I looked around before I walked away and didn't see any of them. Sorry about it being a long post.
