    We live by the ocean in eastern canada. We have an osprey(fish hawk), that has flown over low, twice, with fish in his claws. Do anyone know if they also love chickens. We do have netting over our run, but our 24 free rome every other day.

    They have been known to eat other prey but 99% of their diet is fish.
