There is a nest of redtailed hawks in my neighborhood of south minneapolis. In fact it is in my neighbors tree. Three of them can be seen hopping around in the canopy and flying around our yards. I have 6 large hens. Barred rock, rhode island red. Buff orpington. Americauna, and california white, black astralop. Im wondering if these maturr ladies (1 and 2 years old) are too big for a red tailed hawk to eat? Does anyonebhave information about whether red tailed hawks are a threat to chickens?
