Get Sturdy Cages!
I have had my birds for a few years now.
I have had them sitting outside a few times, mostly to rinse the cage out in warm weather, giving the birds a shower.
Since I got the big flight cage, they haven't been outside, but got their fresh air and sun shine by the patio door.
Did it again today, it has been raining, a couple of cold snaps, so I took the chance this afternoon to open the door, slide the cage in the opening. I have done so many times....
Today - we are in the living room, watching TV, a sudden commotion.
A big brown bird is hanging on the outside of the cage, rattling the cage quite a bit.
Seems we have a hawk.....
This means, should I actually get some chickens for the back yard, I better invest into good protection....

Reason: Not asking divine intervention for chickens - yet....
