I am all new to this. Recently we have lost about 12 total hens. I think it may be hawks. Ive seen them, one large & one smaller. All but 2 lost have been full grown hens. 2 roosters were lost but Im sure that a dog was the culprit by what was left behind. Of the lost hens, most have been found with throats cut or a head missing. Some haven't been found at all. Just blood all around. Leaving behind very docile roosters & hens that seem scared to death!! one of the poor things even ended up DROPPED onto my back deck. Although she didnt have any cuts or blood on her. It was almost as if the darn hawk took her, flew over my house and handed her back to me saying."I can get them no matter what you do".......GGGRRRRRRRRRRrr i know chickens & turkeys aren't supposed to be raised together but putting my RP tom in there with them seems to be the only thing that has stopped these predators.. Any suggestions. The coop is too large to cover it with poultry wire just yet. Newly seperated and finances are tight.
