We lost one Red Star this past Friday to a hawk. My husband found the body. We have been letting the chickens (one Australorp named Bob and Red Stars) roam at will around the yard. Yesterday, even though we were in the backyard burning, the hawk struck again. Bob was a very brave boy, chased the hawk off, and we had no one hurt. Now, of course, we are keeping the chickens (down to Bob and four Red Stars) in the coop/run. We have an 8X8X8 Lowe's shed that has been semi-converted (a perch that only two chickens sit on) with a doggie door that leads directly into a 6X6X6 run. My husband plans to extend the run so it will be roughly double in size (and we will have a double door system in place - one in the new part and the original door will stay). So, the coop is going to get very foul (purposeful pun there), and I wanted tips on that. Or Any way to scare off the hawk and keep it away?
