    I've had some close calls, but have never actually been pecked in the eye. I also don't let my chicks fly up on my shoulder either, but that's mostly because I don't want a big cecal poop down my back...again [​IMG] Sorry about your eye,crazy chicks always have to peck "the shiney thing". Hope your feeling better [​IMG]

    I have to say I have never been pecked in the eye. I would have been scared to death about going blind or something outrageous like that. lol I have been scratched in the eye by my cat though. I still have a scar on my eye lid. Hope your eye is okay! [​IMG]
