We had a bear attack the run and try to get the chickens today. All seem okay except for some feather loss and scrapes on the tops of their heads. The rooster's comb area was scraped the most as he was doing his job and trying to protect the girls. We fired a bear banger, which scared off the bear. One hen escaped, but we caught her. We have bears in the yard quite routinely, and we were glad to have been home during this guys visit! We moved the ark closer to the house tonight and the dog is always an excellent alarm system for bears. I will keep an eye on the top of their heads to see that they heal all right. Darn bear was well-fed too....a big, round fella, not skinny in the least!
