I almost took my own eye out and had a heart attack simultaneously... I was in my bedroom applying mascara for work when I heard such a screech and ruckus I jumped a mile! My bedroom window was open and I always look out to the coop near the woods while I'm getting dressed. I hadn't heard an egg song from any of my hens (I've only had them since Easter), but what a ruckus! I thought she was being beaten or something... All is well, my eye is fine and so is my hen...I'll know better next time!
