    She has been in the nest box since yesterday afternoon. Every time i try to touch her she puffs up and makes a weird noise, but she hasn't tried to peck anyone so far. She is a almost 1 year old delaware.[​IMG]Thanks!

    Sure does sound like it. Does she have a far away sort of stoned look?

    I can't really tell, but she is kind of distant looking.
