    Chickens peck at shinny things and red things mostly. You were lucky.

    When they are two months old, they will be holding illegal brooder parties complete with loud music and free drinks. I have already had to break up a few of those. Thank goodness they are finally outside!!!

    [​IMG] Watch that one. I'm sure your chicky wasn't being mean, she just thought that shiny eye ball might be something interesting.

    When my turkey was about 5 weeks old she would sit in my lap alot. Well one day she was looking me over very closely and pecked my eyebrow. I think she thought it was a bushy worm or something. Anyways it left a little purple bruise for a few weeks.

    Oh, those beautiful, shiny eyeballs are such an attraction to a chicken! I can hear them thinking......"Oh, those round thingy's on your face look so shiny and delicious......Let me have a quick taste!"
