    Oh, I am so lucky! I usually move our Catawba style tractor first thing in the morning while the birds are still upstairs locked in the coop, but I was lazy this morning and came out to do it a little while ago. Well, somebody tried to escape when I lifted it and ended up getting caught underneath the side of the tractor and having the whole thing set down on her!!! She seems perfectly fine, but I honestly thought that I killed her! I'll have to keep a close eye on her and I will never do that again!

    That must've been scary. I nearly ran over a hen with my Henspa once. Fortunately she was fine. [​IMG]

    They are so suprised when they get caught, i was moving my tractor and a hen thought she'd get out..only her head did! She is fine, my daughter was helping me move it and she poked her back through.
