ok me and my daughter were in the house reading our history lesson (we homeschool) i hear the neighbors dogs barking and thought i need to go check in on the girls (they free range). ok went out to check and my dog was coming up through the yard kinda out of breath. i thought ok thats what the other dogs were barking at mine. well i see my 2 buff O's huddled up under some brush and making that ok there is a hawk noise. so i dont see petunia. i started hearing petunia bagocking and went into the woods she sees me and makes a bee line to me. i see a hawk fly up and out somewhat. she ran under the brush with the other 2. i ran the hawk off i thought. came back in the girls were still hid out. i went back out and they were still hid out. the hawk was back and closer. he flew off. i got my girls one by one to put in the pen as i was carrying petunia i noticed some of her feathers were coming out. took her to the pen brought rosey back looked better at petunia and she is missing tail feathers and had a abrassion bout the size of a half dollar. went back got daisey. they all are safe. i brought petunia in to get a better look. she was scared but i think she is ok. i held her some and spread out a blanket. she lay and rest for a few minutes ate some crackers and tuna drank some water. i kept her in for bout an hour. she is in the pen now. they are ok. i know she is sore though. i HATE hawks. i am so thankful i went out in time.
