    Yeah, only with a hawk though. Only during the winter though when there is less animals for the hawks to eat. It didn't single out the bantams, if anything they got away better.

    We have alot of hawks. In the summer but if i do free range then there is alot of cover.... Except for if they happened to be in the several acres of mowed lawn. Probobly would. Never have to feed them. I am worried though because come mid febuary a bald eagle comes by fore a week each year
