    Well really far when she is inspecting the 4 day olds for the first time. Picture proof...

    This was Sandy (supposedly an Ameraucana but looking like an EE) today at 18 weeks old checking out the new arrivals for the first time. She was really giving them the eye. She is none too pleased with them being here and LOUDLY bawks her disapproval whenever HER child picks one of them up. I can pick up as many as I want, as long as Speckles does not see it. [​IMG]

    That'll teach that child to mess with another chicken.
