Greetings everyone, I find my self in a sort of dangerous situation. Birds of prey seem to be converging on my chicken coop, this is no exaggeration. i counted 10 different raptors checking out the pen from the surrounding trees, 5 different hawks(varying sizes) 2 HUGE Great horned owls, a large falcon and 2 others i could only I.D. as some type of large hawk. My coop is invulnerable if not impregnable to all predators, 10ft x 12ft x 10ft high, solid 2 x 4 structure topped with galvanized steel sheet metal roof and hog wire running along bottom and buried in the ground so no digging. If you haven't guessed i have lost a flock before. Outside the pen i use 16ft cattle panels to let them run around and get fresh grass, i let them run around only when i am outside to make sure the hawks wont try anything. Does anyone have a good and effective solution to keeping hawks away? i have been shooting at them with paint balls, nonlethal and perfectly legal. i have heard about CDs but i am not putting too much into that. i had the idea of making a scarecrow. Suggestions?
