Different predators

Postby Minorcafan » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:53 pm

Not sure where to post this but

My neighbour caught someone flying some sort of falcon which had attacked one of my goldtops so she (verbally) attacked the man after chasing the falcon out of my henrun. Hen was missing a lot of feathers but fortunately her skin was intact. I was out at the time. This should not happen again since I complained to the landowner where the falconer was and permission to fly has now been withdrawn.

You have done the right thing and if the landowner has withdrawn permission then it ought to be the end of it. No consolation to you but the falconer was probably not purposely targeting your chickens, normally it's rodents that they go after.

Good job your neighbour was to hand.
Glad the landowner has stopped the falconer flying the bird on his land, hope the falconer doesn't decide to ignore it. Hope the gold top is ok
