    I heard all my chickens screaming, yelling, beating themselves against their pens - I knew something horrible was after them. The pigeons were trying to escape their pen - I just knew a hawk was in the neighbor hood and had probably carried off one of my very few loose bantams. I looked and didn't see anything, they are still flinging themselves against their pens in terror. I go behind the pigeons and one pen and there it is!!!!!!!

    The big black horror! A large black garbage bag with something inside it moving around - jumping up and down. I put my foot on one end - fearing a snake - and there inside is my OEGB roo with his spur caught and totally terrorized!.....Did I have a camera, no!

    I do hope that none of them were hurt in their terrified flights to safety.

    LOL

    My pup is scared of flying plastic bags as well [​IMG]. Just abnormal non living things making scary noises and advances towards them.

    LOL that was funny. My daughter runs around with a black garbage bag as a cape sometimes. The horses in the pasture never take their eyes off her. Plus you can hear them snorting non stop too. Animals are funny to watch sometimes.
