So i have been noticing that the hawk and owl population has been growing near my house and it is starting to make me worry. Right now i have two roosters that seem more protective then the others and i am just wondering if it is likely that they would fight instead of going and hiding in the coop. One day last April i came home to a dead hawk in the yard and it was covered in wounds, and there was lots of feathers missing. One of them still thought it was alive and was fluffing up his neck feathers. I dont know if it was one of them, or a stray cat but do you think it is possible for a rooster to do that? The hawk was a medium sized Red-tailed.
