good to hear Emily is doing well and improving. That's quite the beak she got going reminded me of some type of raptor

I put Emily out by herself in the tractor. She seems to be doing really well! She's hopping, running, and flying pretty well. Yesterday I picked her up and the foot on the injured leg weakly gripped my fingers, so she's getting some strength. I think having more room for "chicken activities" will help her gain strength.
I put Pigeon (my crooked-necked SS pullet) in the tractor because they're about the same size. But Pigeon started jumping on Emily's back, so I took her back out. I expected a few pecks and some posturing, but that was a little too much.
If Emily can't make it into the tractor loft, I may try to bring her back in. I don't want her to be too cold alone.
If you use a lrghorn, use any color but white. White Leghorns eggs have a dominate white coating or something. When I crossed my Araucana rooster, the pullets with the brown momas laid a pretty blue egg. The pullets from the white leghorn hen laid a pale pale blue egg. Just a heads up for you.
True but this time hubby is with who knows he might be able to gently control her. Keep in mind I highly doubt any one can control Granny (including herself - possibly ) But stranger things have happened.
