...but she's okay. Nellie flew up on Emily's shoulder and Emily turned to look at her and just that quick Nellie pecked her eye! She called me up crying and I rushed home. When I got home her eye looked okay, just a little red from crying. She could see okay so I didn't panic and take her to the emergency room. This happened Friday and by the next morning her eye was fine, didn't hurt anymore. We don't know why Nellie flew up on her like that. But they are used to seeing Emily carrying a bowl of warm mash into the coop for them, and sometimes she holds the hens and lets them eat from the bowl in her hands. So maybe Nellie just got over excited. Well lesson learned - if a hen flys up and lands on your shoulder, turn your head away!
