I know that I have some red-tailed hawks that have been around for years. Last Wednesday, my husband came home to a hawk in our yard trying to get one of our RIRs. He scared the hawk away, but our Maggie suffered a broken neck and only lived for about an hour I read several posts and kept my chickens and ducks in the coop for the next few days despite their complaining. We hung several CDs around the yard on fishing line. Since we were home yesterday and today, we decided to let them out and are trying to let our 2 dogs in and out as much as possible - but it is very cold here, so I can't keep the dogs out that long (they are Dalmatians). My daughter saw some commotion in one of our evergreens and saw that it was a hawk. We scared it away and rounded everyone into the coop. But one is missing. We are really hoping that she is hiding somewhere, but I have a sinking feeling that she was taken. Is it possible? I don't know how much she weighs, but she is a RIR, which is a larger breed. I don't know what to do now. I now have 8 chickens and 8 ducks. My coop is not big enough to keep all of them in there. They will be miserable. We can't make our run any bigger until the ground thaws. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
