I have a broody mama hen who during the day lives in our front garden with her babies. I wasn't worried about predators because the go in a coop at night and in the garden there are bushes and plenty of other things to hide in. Not to mention it's right up against the front of the house. So anyways I was in the front room when I hear mama hen screaming. I ran outside to see a hawk standing on a nearby fence with something squiggling in it's claws. I looked and saw that Alice (my mama hen) was missing a chick.... I'm so sad and angry at the hawk!!! I have already lost 2 young (not chicks though) turkeys to a hawk in the past couple months..... And what makes this worse is these chicks are not even mine, they are my friend's chicks! She gave them to me to raise for her because cats kept trying to eat them.
