I was just wondering if a hawk would actually go into the coop to get at chickens, or if they are more of a "swoop in and attack" kind of predator. On occasion I have seen a couple of hawks fly over my yard while my chickens were out (and I was out with them). If the chickens ran into their coop after spotting a hawk, would it actually go in there after them? I hate to keep them locked up all day because I can't be standing guard all the time.
