    That hen, I mean!! She is one of my two sweet/friendly girls but [email protected]#, she sure can make a fuss. She likes the end box to lay in and if someone is in (HER) nest when she needs to lay she makes a fuss! Does not even look at the other boxes. lol

    I have runnnn out there because I thought something got into the coop and found her angry as all get out screeeeching and giving the invador dirty looks from the perch outside the coop!

    I tell you folks! This bird has cried wolf one too many times and I will not be running out there this time to check on them.

    Hope everyone is fairing well in the ice storm.!

    [​IMG] Goodness - my littlest - Silver Chick - makes the LARGEST noise. She will pull other hen's combs to get them out of "her" box and scream like a monster is eating her.

    My loudmouth is Big Bad Betty. I have an Edna, too, but she is my Special Edna (she's handicapped), a Cochin, and quiet and sweet. Seems like when one loudmouth changes personality (or leaves the flock) another one steps up to fill that role.
