We have 2 roosters and 28 hens...all adults 9 months or older. We have TONS of ravens that hang out in our area and they kindly keep the red-tailed hawks at bay. The past couple days, a raven has perched either on the fence top of the chicken run or on the Joshua tree next to the run. Our JG rooster is good about protecting the flock (he'll call all the hens under the the trees if the neighbors turns on a weed whacker!). But, the JG roo can be just feet from the raven and he doesn't care. So, should I not care either? Supposedly, the ravens will only go after chicks and/or dead birds, but not adults. So, is he just eyeing their food maybe? The ravens have never been so interested in our flock, so I am not sure how to feel about it. (The nests are inside the coop...out of sight of the ravens, so that is not it either). I don't want to shoo him away if he is just hanging out. I mean the ravens protect our flock by keeping the hawks away, so if he isn't gonna kill my chickens, then he is more than welcome to hang out. What do you think? Worth worrying about?
