    I have one little red leghorn that is supposed to be a pullet... she is the most spastic little sucker you've ever met. I stick my hand in the brooder and she sprints over to me (which to me reads roo, because "she" will run toward weird noises too like if you scratch the side of the brooder). What's the deal? Are leghorns always this sketchy? She also is not really feathering out like the rest of my flock. They're supposedly the same age but my buff chants and BR's are way more advanced than she is and she pecks everything that moves (and even things that dont!).

    We have a little pullet that has always been a little smaller than the rest of the flock. She is the toughest of all my chicks. I think like ppl the small ones have the Napolian complex. She will kick a roo's butt quicker than any of my girls. It's really funny. Good Luck

    My little leghorn that I had last year was So flighty! She was jumpy and extremely brave. I thought for sure she was a rooster, but she layed beautiful eggs!

    Sadly she died of unknown causes one day last summer [​IMG]
