    I had a close call. Ok, here it goes..

    I was looking at my chicken (note: this had NOTHING to do with my face) and then she pecked me right between the eyes! I'm lucky I didn't loose one of my eyes!


    I learned a VERY important lesson. Everyone that owns chickens NEEDS to read this. Chickens have longer necks then you might think!!

    As for the chicken that did it [​IMG] Lol! I'm just joking. I love all my chickens.

    When my Dark Brahma was like 14 weeks old she pecked my left eye and made a scratch. It hurt SOO bad! Luckily it wasn't too serious and healed overnight!

    Yup yup. Nail polish is very attractive to chickens. *just ask my cousin* [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I had a SLW peck my eyeball -- my reflexes kicked in just in time for me to blink and my eye turned. So it was only on the white. Then I had one of my BSL give me a kiss. She thought she was being nice, but she didn't realize how soft humans are. She git me right on the lip and I had a big blood blister for a while. [​IMG]
