    She's about a year and started doing this when I bent down to clean cages. I was wearing brown, so maybe she thought I as a threat like another bourbon?

    Here she is when she's not strutting, just enjoying a warm winter day out with the chickens!

    Thank, when I first got her she would keep a 50 foot perimeter around me, or as far away from me as possible. Now I walk right up to her and scratch her head. And I've had her only less than a month!
