yesterday i was outside picking up walnuts and i heard a commotion , saw the chickens running and a hawk attacking one of them !!! i RAN AND SCREAMED ( OF COURSE THE HAWK IGNORED ME ) and he still kept after the white chicken Peace , I finally got to the site and saw a LOT of feathers , meanwhile DH was looking for the hawk , she had got to the edge of the tall weeds and apparently Peace put up quite a fight because dispite the loss of a million feathers she had escaped capture !!!! thank goodness!!! There was no blood so that was a good sigh , i made my way into the weeds to find her , hopefully intact and she was tyere with 8 others , they were hiding !!!! i stuck around for a while to make sure the hawk did not return , has ha , meanwhile there were about 8 -10 ravens hassling the hawk , so it flew off > thank you ravens !!!!! After about half hour , the girls came flying and runniong oiut of the weeds and back to the safety of the barn , where BTW , the other 11 chickens were already there . I got Peace and she has a big bald spot right on her back , with about a 3 inch long gash , just barely broke the skin, hardly any blood , i put neosporin on it and let her go . Needless to say they hung around inside the rest of the day . DH is on gaurd today , hope the hawk does not retuen. Hooray for Peace , she is a fighter , kinda funny because of her name !!! LOL.
