Never Mess with a Momma Chicken!!! Ouch#!$@& edited…

Go out for our morning walk and the hen that BB got her teeth into, has a new clutch of babies… here we go again and they are on our property and how they got thru the chicken wire is what we figure out next…

So Mike is holding the dogs back by the fenced area they live in and I walk to the main gate and momma hen freaks and here’s a dozen babies also freaking… so I open the big gate and watch the babies escape, and one gets caught in the chicken wire and I go to grab momma and as I catch her, she turns her head and takes two health pecks at my right hand and actually drew blood…

So I get her out and all the babies but one is out, it is stuck in the chicken wire and can not move and oh dear was momma having a cow… is that possible???…

She is running back and forth between the group and the lone baby that I am trying to get out of the wire and you know what… I could barely see what I was doing… got one major headache on the left side of my temporal lobe…

So I am trying not to get blood drawn again and I am feeling the finger and thumb area numbing, because the hen must have hit my nerve and after what seemed like an eternity and many very loud cuss words directed at our dumb ass neighbors…

I got the baby loose and let it out…

The hand is swollen and it all got caught on the security camera…. which I recorded that part of the issue, in case we have to sue our neighbors, I said loudly, they are eavesdropping when they should mind their own business…..got to research the laws about agricultural and animals… I used to work for USDA an their are laws here in place to protect us as land owners… plus we want to sell and don’t want to have to deal with the neighbors, so fencing always makes good neighbors… fence works better than court….

My hand is sore and swollen, but I took care of the wound and thanks to the military, I have had every shot under the sun, except anthrax… I even got yellow fever shot decades ago, may explain why I don’t have issues with mosquitos, no matter where I have lived or been… still use off tho…

Fingers starting to bother me, so that hen got my nerve… but hey, at least I know the hen my dog got teeth into survived… so today, was good in that respect… maybe…
