    Wrong area to post. This should be in predators and pest. Do you have a pen for the chicks with "flight top netting"?

    You can try using CD's tied so that they spin freely, sometimes the movement will deter them.

    I agree with Marko and sometimes a 22 will do at close range too...some dont agree, but we are all entitled to our own options...

    An enclosed run works wonders for us. We lock them all in the coop at night.
