    I have another brood starting to hatch under a broody hen and went to check on her and the eggs. As I looked into the brooder where last weekends hatch is staying I find my TSC sex link hen sitting there. She is red like a RIR. On her back is a bright yellow White Leghorn chick like it owns the world. I didn't have a camera. [​IMG] but be assured it was adorable.

    I like my leghorns but at the same time i call them my nasty girls. They are my mean ones and they pick on the younger ones. They love to scream at me when im going something they dont like. [​IMG]
