Hello everyone! I need definite answer on this post... It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Red Tail Hawk have taken a liking to flying very closely to my hens, and I'm not a big fan of their actions. I'm thinking about buying fake crows and putting them up, but I need some definite answers to these questions!: - Are hawks afraid of crows? I've looked all over the web, and some people say crows do scare them, and some people saying they don't, so it's extremely confusing. - If I am set up a group of dummy crows, how should I place them? Should I put them in out in the open over my chicken run, or will the hawks dive bomb them and steal my fake crow? Should I put them huddled together in groups, like you see birds do on fences or wires? - Will the Hawks eventually catch on to the fact that these crows don't move and think "Hey... they haven't moved for 5 days.." Any other tips for keeping these pests away are welcome! I've yet to put a net over my chicken run (which is pretty big), but I don't know if I should put all the time and supplies into when winter will be here in a few months... It'll just get covered in snow, and sag in and just break.
