    Howdy Everyone!!

    As of late I haven't been very active on this forum.. but considering my little baby Rad turns 1 year old tomorrow I just HAVE to show her off!

    Rad is a Modern Game/ Hatch cross hen, she was a gift from a family friend and she taught me that chickens can be intelligent and lovable little creatures, often outsmarting the family dogs ;) Her only problem.. This bird's got BALLS! She hates other chickens, has beaten full grown roosters bloody (Standard sized ones I might add!) and beats up our dogs too :p

    Well tomorrow Nov 4th is my little babies first birthday, and I figured she deserves a thread where you all can gaze upon her beauty!

    Happy birthday to beautiful little Rad! That dog looks pretty scared of her! I have a hen that's a lot like Rad. She's a little silkie and she picks fights with huge standard roosters!

    It is so funny that Rad decided to start crowing on her birthday. That beautiful, fierce hen is one of a kind.

    I have one hen who went through a crowing period. I have also seen videos on youtube of crowing hens.

    Miss- I mean queen- Ebony will NOT be beat up by anyone! I put her into a cage next to a huge standard Ameracauna rooster and she attacked him through the bars until I got to separate them.
    Congrats on your first crow from Rad! Ebony crows sometimes when she gets angry. Our hens should meet! [​IMG]

    That would be fantastic! The problem is that I'm smack-dab in the middle of the US and you're on the weat coast. [​IMG]

    You should get video of both of them crowing...I know easier said than done. Once the videos are posted, then take a video of each hen watching the other hen crowing. I, for one, would like to see what happens.
