A hawk tried to divebomb my Langshan banty's chicks yesterday, and the 3 small black banty hens all ganged up and fought him off after several of his attempts. It was amazing to watch. They are great birds! The banties are generally timid and mild-mannered but when the hawk came, they were screaming like I've never heard them and fierce with it -- I was so proud of them. The hawk eventually flew up -- got too scared of them. the little chickies were smart too-- ran and hid and didn't come out until mom was sure the danger had passed. Then she took them into a safe spot inside the barns to forage the rest of the day.
