That's correct. We had an eagle killing chickens in our neighborhood. I watched a raven swoop down and peck at the eagle until he left the area and I have not seen it again.

don't kill the hawk, there is not that many of them ( besides it being illegal)
Maybe it was a raccoon, they are always trying to get our chickens and also leave a mess behind. We have one on camera.
Finally got the one that took out 9 of our free ranging roosters. He was a big one. Even the dogs were scared of him. lol.

Well to their defense 4 of them are foo-foos, coon was over twice their size. But the big dog, lab mix is only 50 lbs. 13 years old, not many teeth left, about blind and deaf but he gave a good bark or 2 at it. He was more interested in laying back down, lol. And no I need no coon apparatus tooth picks. lol.
