Are gorgeous and I cheer every time I see them except today. One scooped up my bantam Ruby and luckily dropped her, but from 20 feet up! You know, I'm all about the circle of life, but want my chickens to stay out it!

Ruby seemingly unharmed (no wounds visible) giving me the stink eye from inside the coop!


  1. It is definitely much easier to be philosophical about circle of life stuff when the life in question isn't one we personally value. Here's hoping Ruby continues to show no ill effects from her hawk encounter.

  2. Poor chicken. Poor chicken owner. Poor hawk.
