Something Unheard Of

Friday I arrived home after dark, so "the man of the place" locked up the chickens in the hen house. He said when he went to do that he found a buzzard in the hen house. He was able to scoot the buzzard out the house. It just hopped over to peach  tree in the chicken yard and perched on it.
I asked him if something were dead in the hen house like a chicken or something else. so strange, that would be the only reason  for a buzzard to fly into a hen house
He said he could not find anything, nothing was out of place and just thought it was a strange happening
Heaven knows.... I have had various creatures in with the poor girls, like the time I had a hawk with them.
When I went out the next morning to let the chickens out, I did not see no sign of the buzzard and just figured it flew away.

But it was Monday, and "the man of the place" told me that the buzzard was back out there. Sure enough there it was hopping along the side of the hen house. The chickens didn't seem to be bothered by it at all.

The best we can tell is that the buzzard isn't ill but could have an injured left wing.
It hops around and can jump up at least five or 6 feet off the ground, but have not seen it fly.
At the time it doesn't seem to be a threat to the chickens. It's been with them for the past four days and the chickens are fine.
Our thoughts are is to just leave it alone and let it heal. And see if it goes on its way here shortly.
I have to say I find it very amusing all of the various creatures that have invaded the chickens in their house or yard. 
Poor girls

I have to say there's never a dull minute here on the farm.


  1. I find that quite amazing, it has to be injured. Time is a great healer....then I suspect you need to be vigilant!

  2. That is a bit strange. Hopefully the poor thing will heal quickly.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
