Fresno The Sussex Hen

By Whittni, Aug 10, 2012 | Updated: Aug 10, 2012 | |

    Fresno is a Light Sussex hen, she's more or less 2 years old. Her besties are two other sussex hens, another Light Sussex, Giovanni and a Coronation named Coronation.

    Fresno steals chicks from broody mothers and the chicks follow her even if they've been following and with their moms for weeks. She doesn't understand that if you want your chicks you sit on them, but not her! She's just like, "Huh! Baby chicks - Cluck - Cluck, come my lil babies!"

    But when every chick that sees you automatically loves and follows you why sit on eggs when someone else will hatch your chicks for you?

    She currently has 3 Lavender Ameraucanas that she took from two different mothers:
