    Ok,I don't know if you have met her,but her names Banshee.One of my favorite hens that I hand raised.Well she has some Odd behavior ever since pullet days.She's been peeping at the ground,and showing me things,as if I was her baby.She also is spending more time with me,then her whole flock,also,some of the hens are ignoring me a bit.She is happy with me,but Buffy and her and Specks still stick with me.Any suggestions on why she might be doing this?I should also mention,she even dust baths right by me,thinking I will soon too.

    Also,Penelope sun baths on me.

    I know she loves me,but,do you think she'll get distracted by me,and hatch chicks,but ditch them?

    There is no telling how good a mama hen will be in raising her chicks until they do it. Some are very good mamas and others not so much.
