Hachi WAS in the woods, right on the edge. The other two booked it for the brush.
Really? That is crazy!
Where do you live? Is it the first time you lose on of your chicken by a hawk?
Happy Thanksgiving All! I hope you have a wonderful day!
Same thing happened with a sizzle rooster of mine. Fortunately the Goshawk was scared off and rooster was fine.
Goshawks hunt in the woods and prefer lots of tree cover so they can ambush their prey
Here's the Northern Goshawk
It wasn't a goshhawk, it was a medium sized brownish one, maybe a peragrin falcon? It wasn't bigger than her I did see that. I'm in new hampshire and I have never had a hawk problem before but like already said they are migrating so I guess one was hungry enough to take her down. Out of all of them I wouldn't expect her to be the one to get killed though, she was the strongest of the bunch.
Poor thing. I pen my silkies now because they just can't see to go for cover.
I don't think the Goshawk will be back. They are secretive hunters, and do not like to hunt near humans.
Did you breed the paints yourself or did you buy hatching eggs? It is hard for me to believe that those 2 came from paint breeding.
Yeah as soon as I walked out the door it flew off. But I will keep them inside from now on when I am not around or my dog isn't out there. My rooster is no help
Edna the blue partridge @ 24 weeks now. Starting to stand pretty
And so disappointed that I let someone hatch my eggs, and they ended up with Chippie here. Considering stealing him away in the middle of the night lol
I wouldn't expect a polish bantam rooster to help. They are quite stupid when it comes to that sort of thing.
