Lucy is a partridge Easter Egger hen. We believe she is partially deaf. She has recently begun eating Dirty Birdie’s feathers, so that’s a problem I need to solve immediately.
Lucy is a hunter, always waiting until little birds gather around her then chasing them in hope of a quick snack. She led the flock in hunting juvenile mocking birds last summer. It took them a few days, but they finally got one. I am not sure which hen had the pleasure of eating most of its head, but I suspect it was Lucy.
Lucy would be a mean babysitter if she was a person.
