This morning I found a red tailed hawk feather right outside my coop. I had my girls running around in a separate area, lucky the hawk didn't figure that out. But now with the possible threat of a hawk flying around my home, I've been keeping the girls inside their coop. The Eagles in my area seem to have little to no interest at the moment, which I'm glad for. I did have one juvenile stop and think about attacking my girls, but never actually tried. Just sat in a tree and then left. I've never had a bird of prey actually try and get in until now. My coops a large, and slightly modified version of this, with chicken wire around it instead. We made sure that the wire was tight and well succored. Its managed to keep dogs, and raccoons out so far. But is there a change of a hawk getting through chicken wire?? How long will a hawk stick around before it gives up, or will I always have to worry about a hawk swooping down and grabbing a chicken when she's out and about.
