Gloria Tauzin : I just
thought I would share these pictures of how I am keeping out the
hawks. After my first bantam rooster was taken by a hawk, I looked
up about chickens and hawks and found that this woman who was
loosing chicks daily to a hawk used fishing line weaved like a
spider web over them kept them out. She stated it worked great
but that it would eventually break up due to the sun. Well I thought
about it and had a roll of hay bale twine. As you can see from
the pictures it worked great. I couldn't afford to close the pen
in so I had two landscape timbers and some bamboo and attached
twine to bamboo and ran to the barn and just made a web. Works
great. I used bamboo to raise the twine inside so I can get around.
Now I don't have to worry so much. Hope this will help someone
who has this dilemma. Take care and God Bless.
