    one of my girls was attacked by a hawk. No damage done to her body that I can see. Her eyes got scratched.( I saw blood around them) she is still laying but I think she may be blind in one eye. she is misjudging where the food is and is pecking all over the air. and not down. I am right now hand feeding her. she still tends to miss my hand but does manage to get food in. she just misses a lot. do u think she will be ok?

    Yes she will learn to adapt to having one eye. We have a hen with one also. She got into a fight with one of the other hens and had it pecked out. That's been about 4 months ago and she is doing just fine. If I didn't know it happened I would never never had known.
