only the front two runs are covered....haven't figured a way to secure the back run....lost a hen today for the first time ever to a hawk, they are super aggressive this year. Guess the girls will have to stay in the front or side runs.
All 5 of my runs are covered. Mostly with poultry wire and one with netting.
The hawks have become plentiful this year and aggressive. I had one land and stand less than 5’ from the run door and watch the girls run inside.
they are a beautiful animal to watch but this ain’t a KFC
This is our best solution to ward off hawk attack "if spotted in time" its called a chunnel a.k.a chicken tunnel. It is 24"x 24" and covered with camouflage netting....our girls absolutely love it. Ours is leaned up against the house but could be set up as a pyramid. Only one word of caution don't leave any loose ends...we had one girl get tangled up in it and was that way for several hours before we got home from work.
