As you may know, I work from home and the girls free range the back garden all day; unless I am not home.

 

Anyways, I heard one of them squawking up a storm [danger alarm] and I raced outside. 

 

Cilla was semi-flying down one side of the garden, across the back fence, back across the lawn, up the path and then hid under the BBQ near the gazebo, danger alarm the whole way.  It really sounded like something had either tried to take her or something bit her.  The others were all standing still, a couple growling.

 

It took me ages to talk Cilla out from under the BBQ and she was breathing so heavily she was wheezing. 

 

I could not see anything in the garden and I have checked her over thoroughly and besides still being a bit freaked out, she seems OK. 

 

I have them all locked up in the run for now until they settle and I finish work and can supervise free range.

I know when my flock has had a scare from a hawk, it can take them weeks to use the same part of the garden again - interesting that they have a good memory when it suits 'em and other times - :th

Well, whoever "conceived" that one, needs to put a stop to their breeding programme :lol:

Hey Ken I thought aerial but I have only seen 2 hawks here in 6 years and they were way off in the distance.

 

I am hoping that she was not bitten by something small that I cannot see :(  Keeping a very close eye on her.

Lets hope that it was just a scare, and nothing more. At least you are at home, so you can monitor things.

X2 on what Chris said.

Glad she seems to be OK.

Nevertheless, she persisted.

Thank you ... my fear was snake but seen as she is still with us, I am guessing that was not the case.

 

She seems well enough to be picking on her flock mates in the run [she is semi-broody] so I will let them out again soon and keep an eye on the sky ;)  She probably tripped on a vine or something similar which triggered the 'Help Monster' reflex :rolleyes:

I had that happen and it was a hawk attack. I was able to scare it away and my chicken was ok except some scratches and she also was wheezing...took about an hour to coax the chickens out of all the hiding spots.
