    :rantSo I had to cull my two games hens this morning because the two evil little hens attacked my 1 year old son [​IMG] when we went outside to let them roam and fee them ! I didnt kill them though I traded them at our local feed store for 1 leghorn pullet and a red sex link. They scratched up my sons legs and I swatted them with a broom, but of course now theres an uproar in the hen house ! poor little leghorn is totally picked on !

    Hi,

    So sorry to hear about that. I never had any experience with such a mean hen and I hope I never do.

    Good luck with the new ones! [​IMG] Genie
