I was in my house working when I heard my hens making noise. I looked out my window to see one of my male call ducks being attacked by a light brown bird. I thought it was my older Ameraucana hen, so I went to outside to break it up. When I got outside, I made some noise as that usually gets my hens off the attack, and the bird flew over my 7 or 8 foot high chain link fence that surrounds my bird pen and the bird continued to fly another hundred yards onto a dead tree. I knew that wasn’t my chicken. Luckily, the bird didn’t kill any of my ducks and chickens, but my male call did have a small patch of feathers missing and was bloody from that. My chickens were hiding in the back of my coop, but my ducks only have protection during the day by going under the coop. They have a wooden box that they sleep in at night, and that will be opened for them from now on, but I want to deter the predator from trying again. I live in Ohio, and raptors are illegal to kill. If anyone has any tips to deter the raptor, I would greatly appreciate it. My family will not let me put something up to create a roof, so I’m looking for anything other than that. I can post pictures of my pen, I just don’t have any right now.
