I was hanging out in the coop for a few minutes this afternoon. Some of the chicks (4 weeks old now) like to come sit on my arms or shoulders. One Black Star perched on my shoulder and played with my earrings and snuggled in my hair. She was there a few minutes and I turned to look at her. WHAM! Pecked right in the eye. Took half a second. I gave it a few minutes to see if it would stop hurting. It didn't, so I loaded up the kids and headed to a walk-in clinic as my regular doc couldn't fit me in. Sure enough, corneal abrasion. *sigh* So add me to the "I've been pecked in the eye by my chicken" club. Guess my eye looked like a big grape to her. It hurts like heck! I think I'll hang a pair of safety glasses on the coop wall. . .
