Hey Kamir, we are only about 40 mins away from each other!!
Haha! <3 this one
I'm in Worthington [actually West Franklin Twp.), Armstrong County!
My chickens actually have 4 balsaam firs to hide under--the hawk got a Welsummer pullet in the 5 ft gap between the fence and a fir tree! I had hoped to free range them when they are full-grown, as we have the acreage here. I did run monofillament line criss-cross over their yard, hung a stupid plastic owl from a fence post (I'll move it every couple of days), and a small mirror is now flashing in one of the firs. Thinkin' I might try a scarecrow . . .
I know it's illegal to kill raptors--thanks for the warning, though. How does one attract crows???
Rehoboth! A Welsummer! Oh no, I'm sorry. We have lots of crows. Their raucous usually alerts us to the fox's shenanigans. I believe corn is a good way to attract them.
My husbands family all live in susquehanna/bradford counties... friendsville area and his dad is in Endicott NY...
are peacocks an option for you?? heard they are great guard birds... also i don't know if you saw my post about the saddles with the eyes on the back...
Welcome to all the newbies. Sorry on the loss rehobooth!
I also lost one of my pullets over the weekend...not sure what she died from. Came home last night to find her dead in one of the nest boxes with a feather from another bird locked in her beak....
In addition I "lost" 2 of my pullets.....they crowed!!!!!! My numbers are NOT going the way I wanted them to....that makes 7 roos...and 22 hens!!!! YIKES!
I am however picking up 6 14-week old ducks today...my luck, they're all boys too!
