She had been attacked by a red tailed hawk a couple of days ago. I didnt see any open wounds on her and thought she was ok. Last night when they all went to go in she didnt. I walked over to her and she walked right between my legs and stayed there. I picked her up and moved her to the other side of the barn so she would be by herself. I gave her a blanket and put straw around her. I couldnt bring her in the house because I had no place to put her, DH wouldnt have liked that. Today I checked on her and she just laid there. She didnt touch her food. I tried to get her to drink but she wouldn't. She was one of my first eggs I hatched. She was a RIR and born on Easter 2008. I fell like I lost my best friend. Yesterday my DH was looking outside and said, theres whats going to kill your chickens. He thought it was a hawk. He took the gun out and Im waiting saying shoot, shoot in the house the next thing I know the bird is flying away and I said why didnt you shoot that D(&* thing? He said when he looked at it in the scope it was an Eagle. We dont have many of those around here so my babies have to stay in today and they may have to stay in for a week. I have seen the red tailed hawk and if I see it again it will be dead. But don't worry I wont shoot the Eagle. I guess if that gets one of my chickens theres nothing I can do about that. I wouldn't kill an Eagle if I was allowed to, they are a beautiful bird. I just miss my girl.
