What kind of shelters do you all have in your yard for chickens to duck under for cover against hawks?
I had a problem with one small persistant hawk last year bothering my girls and would like to build some inexpensive protection for them.
We're not totally red-neck, so we don't have broken down cars or farm equipment parked all over the place.

I built teepees out of saplings and fabric from some old patio umbrellas. Someone I know has just sapling huts made in the style of Eeyore's house in Winnie the Pooh.

Good luck.

I got some free pallets and wired them (two for each shelter) together with leftover electric fence. I open them into tepees and place them around the pasture for shade/shelter from hawks. You can get free pallets most anywhere- one of our biggest sources around here is Sears.
