70. Last winter I saw a real drama in the snow - not for the faint of heart, but
I noticed all my chickens were huddling in the coop. I looked around and saw the spot where a large bird had taken one of my hens down and then gutted it. I could see then where the hawk? eagle? had tried to lift off with the chicken and had to make a couple hops before it got airborne. So, a large predator can carry off an 8 lb hen.
