I've lost 2 girls, most recent one was most definitely a hawk. Found the bird dead didn't see the predator. General consensus on this forum was it was a hawk. I know we have a hawk in the area as we hear it daily. I kept my girls penned up for a while since the last kill, but have gotten more comfortable the last 2 weeks and have been letting them out to free range in my fenced in back yard for most of the day when I'm home. I set up a "baby" monitor where I can hear any activity in the back yard. I was sitting in my sun room about 3:00 when I heard the birds making a ruckus. I knew the hawk had been around today and had been outside frequently checking on them. They have been real good at running under the porch when frightened. Well, I heard their cries and ran outside without my shoes on. As soon as I hit the deck I saw one of my girls down on the ground with the **** hawk on top of her. I ran into the yard yelling and waving my arms and of course it flew away. The poor hen lay there motionless, head to one side, apparently already dead. I quickly scanned the yard for the rest of the girls and saw one running for cover, the others already under the porch. I then started towards the down bird and noticed she was still breathing but laying there motionless. My fear was she was gravely injured but barely still alive. As I got close to her, to my shock, she jumped up and ran toward the porch. I of course went after her to attempt to see if she was injured. All the birds went way up under the porch and I couldn't get to them. My husband got home not long after that and helped me coax them with meal worms and we got them all in. Henny, the one attacked seems to be OK. Aside from some ruffled feathers I can see no injury. I am so amazed that she "played dead" like that. Had she not done that, and had I not been here to respond so quickly she would have been dead in another couple of seconds. Not sure what I will do now. I have got to make sure my girls are safe, but I know how much they love being out. Good luck to all of you out there with similar situation.
