Earlier this summer, we had an animal attack, and only one of our 3 chickens survived. Either raccoon or fox made a hole in the chicken wire big enough to get in the coop enclosure. She was really badly injured (half her face is missing, including the eye) and in shock. We didn't think she'd live long and considered putting her out of her misery, but we didn't have the guts to. But what do you know, she pulled through and is fine now. So we named her Chuck (as in Chuck Norris) because she is a pretty badass chicken. She lived in our upstairs bathroom for a couple months, and eventually learned how to run up and down the stairs. Guess she doesn't miss having depth perception because birds don't really have it to start with.
It's hard to believe that Chuck can just get along like that, figuring out how to cope with only one eye all of a sudden. But animals are resilient and do what they need to in order to keep living. Pretty inspirational to me really. Especially because she just started laying eggs once again. After all that trauma and almost dying, she's back to normal, a new normal. Just with a little time and a bit of extra care from her clueless owners.
