    Okay, THAT is not normal. I'd get rid of him in a heartbeat. Not good genes to pass along to offspring - no room for a mean rooster here.

    I got rid of a gorgeous rooster that would attack me every time I went into the run. (not my kids, not DH, just me) I finally got tired of having to constantly watch my back (and explain all the bruises on my legs - he had a knack for breaking blood vessels) - so he's gone now. It was a tough choice because he did have good qualities - he was great at watching over babies and protecting them.

    thank you i have started the search togetrid ofhim.

    its a shame as heis just getting hislovely feathers in and is even afraid ofhis own shadow , this is his first ever problem with him but its abig one !
    its only this week that he has started before this hewastheone who was chased around and peckedbut never beated on i think his frisky behaviour isgetting him in to too much trouble as he hasnow learned his dancing moves( belive itor not he practiced on the water bowl first)

    thanks for the advice ill keep a search going to get rid,
    least if hegoesi can buy two new birds to replace the lost one :) always have to lookonthebright side

    Finally! I figured out the picture thing. I have to do from my desk top.
    Here is the Barnie hen I got from on Craigslist. I am told she came from Andy's Farm ( Mountain View Orchards ). I will try for a full body picture later todayl Love the Vivid Lacing That Goes all the way back.

    I know! I am still blown away that a quality hen, only a year old was up for grabs. Usually they are spoken for in seconds. The add was up for a week.

    Beautiful hen:) Andy has some good stock. She looks like she has more vB and/or KC in her than Johan. Those lines tend to produce darker hens with really good lacing. You've got a really nice hen:)

    Is it just me and my monitor or does that lacing appear to be more golden than bay red? I recall seeing some of Andy's birds on here last month or so and I thought they were really very nice. This pullet is a nice looking bird but the lacing appears to me to be more golden. I only ask because the OP says she was "told" the bird came from Andy's farm - which leads me to believe there is a possibility that it didn't.

    Andy, where are you? Weigh in and let us know what you think!

    God Bless,
