Heck, I've had hawks go after my birds with me standing there.
Some years ago, a hawk took one of my guineas right in front of me. One year I had a mama hawk who would sit on the horse arena fence everyday which is only a hundred feet behind the house, and watch the guineas. She took seventeen guineas that year to feed her babies, one a day.LOL It happened again this morning. I was out there doing stuff about 50 feet from the Guineas when they alarmed. I looked up just in time to see a hawk swoop over their heads. It wasn't a Red Tail, too small.
That was probably a dozen years ago and everything was free range. The chickens had roosts in the barn and that got pretty messy. I was always hatching Eastern Wild Turkeys and they would all take off with the local wild flocks. My current setup is better.Dang, I don't think I could handle that emotionally. Luckily I'm set up that I can keep them up if I had one like you had just waiting for a target.
