IN my yard :gaah:. Thankfully they are all okay, the last two just came out of hiding. I'm wondering will the hawk return? My husband heard the commotion and scared the hawk away. I've never had one in the yard before, sometimes they fly overhead. (I'll start leaving the big dog in the yard more often, that might help a bit.) So should I keep my chickens/ducks on house-arrest in their coop/run? And yes, we could legally shoot the hawk, but I don't think that's a viable option as a rifle bullet would be unsafe, and I think a shotgun would do more harm than the bird. Would a BB gun deter the hawk?
