    Hello. Welcome to BYC. You are likely to get a better response posting in the predators and pets section of the forum:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/13/predators-and-pests

    I free ranged by birds for a little more than 2 years with no issues. Then one was killed by a hawk and the hawk has returned almost every day since then. I now keep them in a fully inclosed run and only let them out if I am in the yard.

    Hi there, [​IMG]and welcome to BYC!

    Chickens R Dinos gave you a link that might really help you out. Do some searching thru this section or the archives on how to keep predators at bay.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!

    Welcome to BYC. Eventually everyone has to deal with predator problems. Have a solid plan of defense against them.
