Hawks and Dead Chicks =(

Hello Everyone,
I am so sorry that I haven't been posting! We don't have wireless Internet anymore so we all take turns on the computer and I don't have much time.
When we first moved here a hen hatched 12 chicks and now there are only 5! Sydney's dog managed to kill two - even with his muzzle on! (We have to get rid of him now) =( One of the chicks drowned in the water bowl used for our dogs, and the rest were killed by hawks! Does anyone know how to get rid of them? (It's illegal to shoot them.)

Well that is all for now,
Stephanie

Awwww. =( =( =( That is really sad.
As for ideas... I looked up on Google: "How to keep hawks away from chickens"
Here are a couple of links I found.

That is pretty hard.
I have chickens but since we don't have a rooster we buy them as chicks which I then raise by hand, some from 1 day old. But I am afraid I can't help you much with keeping the chicks safe since these ones have a mom and are more wild, I have always just kept mine in a run that has a roof when they were not inside and then watch them closely while they were out free to explore, so like I said I can not help much :( I hope you are able to find something though.
