Finally let my youngest pullets, 11 wk. old ees, out to free range with the full sized hens(they live in separate pen) and the banty hen the ees live with. The banty guards her "babies" like a hawk and usually when a big hen comes near, she stands firm while they head for their coop. Yesterday, they didn't notice the delaware come up on them and swooped in on them. As they ran screaming in alarm, here comes momma. She gooses the delaware, which sends her 4 feet into the air, squawking her humiliation. Meanwhile, the banty keeps going straight under her to her "babies" crying "mama's comin', mama's comin'". What a sight. Never a video camera when you need one.
