  •  I love hawks but I've lost two chickens to them (7+ / 0-)

    and reluctantly have put my 3 living chickens in a big cage (it's a 4 x 10 dog run).  A redtail tried to carry off my biggest chicken last Thxgiving.  The big girl fought back and then ran and hid in the garage.  The hawk lurked on the streetlight waiting for her to emerge until my kid scared it off.  My chicken finally came out of the garage hours later, bleeding and with feathers missing.
