Iv'e been loosing my chickens latley to something that I have no idea what. It happens most times during the day when im not here since im at school. I'm not sure its a hawk because theres usually a trail of feathers where it chases my birds then catches it, takes it into the woods, and then takes it under a brushpile to eat it. I'm not sure what it is because like I said, I'm not here. And most often its my bantam cochins,(since they cant run or fly very fast). So I think im going to make a pen for the cochins and then just get the birds with the best flying ability to free range. Because alot of the time they likke to go over into the horse field into the briars and what not and I want them to be able to fly up and over the briar patches if need be. So what are the birds that can fly the best? THanks, Cole.
