We lost another chicken today, (thats 2 in one month. So sad.) Abby, our blind golden laced wyandotte, got killed by a hawk. I let the 3 girls out to free range for 5 minutes, and I came out and there he was, ontop of my poor little girl. I feel like it's my fault that she got taken, because if I hadn't let them out, she'd be alive. But, he's been there, waiting, for months. It was going to happen. We didn't let him take her, and tried to scare him away. We threw rocks and screamed and waved our hands; he didn't care. The hawks aren't scared of people anymore. They will take your birds. Keep your girls in their runs this time of year, when the food is scarce for the birds of prey. R.I.P. Lil Abby, we already miss you so much. Darn this stupid hawk. This is the first time one of our chickens has been killed by a predator. And i hate the stupid things. This one is huge, and he'll be back. My girls are staying in their run.
