Okay to start off, this is a question pertaining more to my friend than myself. I have chickens AND chihuahuas, she has chihuahuas only. She has lost one to a coyote and since then spent a ton of money on fencing with roll bars? at the top. Now she is worried about hawks. We know one woman who lost more than one to a hawk. One of her babies disappeared and the next day while she was still putting up fliers/calling neighbors,etc - she watched a hawk come down and snatch another one. My question...is there a netting or some type of topper she could utilize? Her yard is not that large. She is even thinking of getting a large dog to be out with the little ones. Also someone told her hawks are afraid of turkeys!?? Really? I would think a turkey might be too noisy to live in her neighborhood though... Any suggestions aside from illegally shooting the them?
