This morning, right after I let my girls out into the run and returned to the house, there appeared a huge coven of crows (about 8) in the maple tree directly over their area. I only have 3 banties and the crows are bigger then my chix and outnumber them. So. . . do I need to be worried about the crows hurting or killing them? My DH thinks they are after the food that is in and around their coop and run. What to do? I need to go off to work now and for the moment the crows have departed, but I know I'll be worried all day. We don't have any protective cover over the run, although we will get some chicken wire and put it up over the top of the run probably tomorrow. With colder weather coming and less natural forage around, will the crows think my girls are an easy meal?
