Í am still wondering about how to fight eagle warriors in Castle Age. Today i just played a game as Indians, dying to Mayan Eagle warriors. I was walling and massing xbows, which is obviously a bad idea - completely forgot Indians dont have arbs anymore. I should probably have gone Camels, but i feel they still wouldnt do too well vs Eagle warriors that had already reached quite a big Mass when he hit Castle Age. But what is the solution for a civ that doesnt get cheap longswords, cheap knights or some UU that kills eagles? Can scorpions behind help out against Eagles?
Castle age Skorp is 12 Damage, Chicken Men have 5 pierce armour, so the main target takes 7 damage. But how is the math about the stray shots? Is it 12:2 -5 = 1 damage or is it (12-5) :2 = 3.5 damage? If it is 3.5, do the eagles take 3 or 4 damage with a stray shot?

Agree with HyunAOP here, Cavalry Archers are gonna perform much better than Crossbowmen when it comes to killing eagles, they kill them faster and have way more mobility, and the Indians actually have Heavy Cavalry Archer whereas they do not get Arbalest.

Yep it's 3.5 damage, so IIRC it's gonna be split and the eagles are gonna take 3 damage half the time and 4 damage the other half of the time, averaging to 3.5.

I think Knights + Scorpions could be a decent combo vs eagles, but I haven't seen this or tried it myself
