Well it happened. I lost my first chicken. I believe it was a red tailed hawk. I cried like a baby. I witnessed it happen but was too late to save her. My chicks have a coop that is surrounded by a fence. The coop is nice and secure. For when they're in there at night. But the defence around it is only about 4 ft high. And nothing covering the top. I feel like my only option is to redo the fence. Make it smaller and put a top over it. Will that even keep the Hawks out? Or are they persistent? Oh man.
