    I'm hoping it's just allergies. I get all clogged up and run down. Our weather has been crazy. 90 then 65 then sunny then blustery then below 40 at night then wind blowing. I was so wound up last night I couldn't fall asleep. I have 3 CRAZY barking whining dogs here. NO peace. Whining all night, barking just no peace. No way to get away from it. [​IMG]

    Thanks wishing. I'm going to give it a few more weeks. I've already seen how a sweet hen can turn quick. My sweetest Henrietta turn on the little Brahma. I didn't think she'd bully anyone after being bullied by my other two hens. Boy was I wrong. The Brahma I feel like needs company. She's the smallest hen that I have and just stays to herself dodging the others. I'm hoping moving her in with the others go well but I'll just have to see. That will free up one of my small coops that I can put a few of the ones my broody is sitting on now. Sure hope it goes well. I know it's just the way things is supposed to go but I hate to see them pick on one another.

    That sounds frustrating. About the allergies and winning dogs. Hope everything gets better soon for you.

    I LOVE Ridgebacks! Strong breed though. M/F to me is more of a personal preference as is to spay/neuter or not. IMO and IME, an un-neurered male can be quite aloof and distracted. I'm rambling with thoughts here. A male is more apt to roam and protect your entire property whereas a female draws her boundaries closer.You, the house, your car, etc. Breed is important too. M or F golden retriever or Lab, still, I find the F's more caregiving but hardly noticeable. M or F rottie or RR or shepherd, etc, the difference IMO is much more pronounced. I lean both ways, but for a RR and you and not type A I'd go F or neutered M.
    All that said, temperament testing a litter is the best indicator of future temperament. Google Volhard puppy temperament testing. That's what I use to eval litters. It's amazingly accurate.

    I'd go for it with monitoring. How many littles? 4? She may be a great little mentor and love the company.

    Yes I think bantams. I do plan on keeping her in a cage inside the coop for a couple of weeks. You think the silkie will be ok with the two ee and keet and the hen I'm putting with them?

    [​IMG]I want a chair between them all to sit and watch. The RR's looked really nice! The littles are pure RIR too?
