    i got a new marans rooster this week (couldn't get the hen without HIM), and he's proving to be a great guy. HOWEVER, one of my normally sweet wyandottes decided to challenge his authority... here is Sister Mary Agnes in all her bravery- i just happened to be in the coop when it happened!

    Great pictures! He's handsome. Hopefully Sr. Mary Agnes will learn to accept him!

    thanks! after this ruckus everything seemed to be fine- i guess they just looked at each other crossways and she wouldn't stand down. (hope i posted this in the right place- "chicken behavior.")
