    Last night my favorite and friendliest chicken named Nugget was sitting on my shoulder and I was talking to her. Suddenly she cocked her head, looked right in my eye and pecked my contact lense out! It didn't hurt my eye but she ate my contact lense! [​IMG]

    I love having her on my shoulder but I am a little freaked out! Just had to share.

    This has happened before. Chickens will PECK your eye out, be careful, you're lucky it was only your contact lens and not your iris. I don't let mine get too close to my eyes after my earring got pecked out of my ear.

    No kidding! Thats scary, dont get that close to the chickens myself. Kinda like the I'm up here your down there perspective! I've had them look at my fingertips in that "I think I'm gonna peck that " sort of way. You are so lucky! I know they dont necessarily mean any harm but I wouldn't let one near my face! I've seen what they do to each others butts!

    I've been pecked in the eye and had an earring eaten. They like shiny purdy stuff. [​IMG]

    OMGosh, I am blind as a bat without my contacts. That little bugger. I would have to feel my way back to the house. [​IMG] Last time I went to the eye doc I told him I was blind as a bat, he said a lot of people say that.....then he looked at my chart and said well, in this case you really are. Thanks Doc.
