I can shut them in but they are used to being free range. There are lots of bushes and trees in the garden to hide. I guess that now all the maize is in which used to house lots of wildlife the Buzzards are struggling to find food. Clyde often sits up on a fence for all to see! On the afternoon he was hurt we were out with Bruno, who always barks and asks to go out if the chickens set up their alarm call.
He was a very healthy young bird which should work in his favour. I will have to keep him seperate until completely healed though as I know the others will attack an injured bird. I am planning to put him in with Saffy hen as she is isolated due to being bullied, she cannot walk far. I hate this sort of thing but know it is part of keeping animals.
