    She's 9" tall & weighs about 12 lbs. My 2 BO crosses rush her when she goes outside, they'll even peck her and do a flying rooster kick if they catch her. I've tried "mopping" them and it works as long as I stay out there. It'd be great for her to be able to go out back and just putter around like she used to. They try it with the Great Dane mix and she looks at them as is if, "Do you not KNOW you're just a chicken?"
