    My sweet little half blind hen is sweet no more.
    When I let the chooks out this morning and did my inspection of the coop I found Lil' Bit on the nest and she was not happy about me being there. She hissed the whole time.
    I said excuse me and left. [​IMG] Awhile later when I poked my head thru the doorway to see what she was up to, she spotted me and hissed some more.
    When I went in an hour later to change the waterer, she was still on the nest and added angry clucking to her hissing in case I hadn't gotten the message.
    I started thinking broody? [​IMG] but she's off the nest now.
    I guess some girls are serious about needing their privacy, but I would never have guessed it about my sweet little baby. [​IMG]

    Wow, that is weird. Unless it is a Brahma, I would expect some thing like that from them [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, she's a brahma alright. Just tiny and now add the tude. She's been spoiled from day one, but now that she is my roo's favorite, I guess she's decided to be a diva too.​

    I've heard that about some brahmas, but mine aren't. They are a very independant type of bird and if they don't see me all day, they're fine. However if I take the time to go and sit out with them while they are free-ranging they all congregate around me; telling me about their days. Jezebel has to jump up on my leg and complain about something. She's always complaining about something. [​IMG]
    What most people remark on when they meet my birds is how calm they are. Nothing bothers them. Just different breeding strains I guess.​

    Quote:I think it's more about their upbringing. from day 1 our girls have been exposed to barking dogs, opening garage doors, the car coming into the carport from the alley, garbage cans, cats, loud power tools, garden implements, and more. Nothing phases them. The neighbor's recycling barrel freaked out the BR one day when they were moving it, but since then... nuttin.
