    now, million dollar question- is mopsy a girl??? she makes weird squeaks and growls, i trimmed her topknot with the lice episode, and she gets brushed every day, she still has balance problems- i'm guessing genetic maybe? she will stand hunched over, occasionally will stand straight and she can get going pretty fast once she gets going forward

    when i first got her in august, she could barely walk, over time that is getting better- here is a link to her early days till now-

    so i am guessing she is about 7 months? the roo i got with her was supposed to be the same age, he has been crowing but never flirts with her, he has always been her protector, they originally were put in with standards before i got them- so don't know much of her history other than she wouldn't leave the coop- anyway... how would i tell if she is broody?
