    Oh my! Everytime I go near her she makes this noise that is more than a growl. She sounds like on of the dinosaurs from the movie Jurasic Park, the small ones that attacked the man after he crashed the jeep, lol.....

    Here she is!

    Very Pretty Hen!

    Im not sure to let my broody keep her egg (she is sitting on 2) or not. Seeing how fierce she is, she might make a great Mama. But I still have Mama and 5 chicks in the big cage, how will she take it if I move in another Mama and 2 babys in 3 weeks?

    Quote:She sure sounds like a great mama! Why not leave her where she is and see how it goes hatching in with the flock? I've had some do so, and all my chicks have been in with the flock within a few days. The only hen that ever attacked her chicks was the mama, and they may have been dead when she did, I don't know.

    Just mark the eggs -- and wear heavy gloves when you check under her for more eggs each day! Sounds like she's be a mean packer!
