Birds of Prey
Posted by on 05 July 2011 12:29 PM

It's very unusual for birds of prey to attack chickens and this would only occur with the really big hawks such as Buzzards or with accidental attacks from trained birds of prey such as Harris Hawks, and Sparrowhawks. Kestrels and Red Kites won't take hens as they either hunt for smaller birds or carrion. Hens are much, much bigger than most of these garden visiting birds of prey so are quite safe, although they will make alarm calls and run to hide if any fly overhead as this is a natural instinctive reaction.
