I just started letting a few of my girls out at a time while I was out with them last weekend. This week there is a hawk basicly living in my back "yard". She actually flew into the window in my office door one day, and when I didn't see a bird get up and fly away after hearing the noise, i got up and opened the door. There at my feet was a beautiful red tail hawk. She looked up at be and slowly flew away. Since then she has been in the oak and manzanita trees right outside for a few days now. I got home yesterday and she was in the birdbath on my deck! The chickens have not been out since I first saw her and they live on the other side of the property. She does not seem to be watching them. They are 9 weeks old tomorrow and seem too big for her already IMO, but I guess it's her "opinion" that matters. She seems to be mostly attracted by the water, the birdbath and the fountain and the hundreds of mourning doves that hang out back there. Do you folks think that once my girls and boy are full grown that she will still be a problem for them?
