    Thanks FEM. Always upsetting at first, especially when you think you've gotten the upper hand on the hawks, but part of raising chickens. I went down into the fenced off area, and I could see where the hawk attacked the chicken...and, I could see he had a path to swoop right in. Need to erect a few more barriers so he can't glide into that area again.

    Thanks, all!

    Added the dwarf cattail, two sarassa comets and a pond statue today...the two comets are hiding.
