Am just devastated.... This morning my very brave White Rock rooster rushed to defend his young hens and babies that adored him and was killed by a nasty hawk that turned it's fury on him. He was in my side yard where several of the youngsters and a few hens stay during the day...only a couple feet from my front door..and this monster swooped down from the roof of the chicken house. I am soooo upset, "Friendly" was a beautiful, sweet rooster that I was keeping to eventually replace my old White Rock roo, and I had just taken the photo in my avatar of him 2 days ago. Have spent years fortifying this place against against racoons and possums, sitting out many nights eradicating them...and now a stinking huge HAWK that has no fear of humans even??!!!
