    She is currently broody and is sitting in 9 eggs, she is a ginger red oegb and she is not aggressive towards me when i try to pet her while she is sitting on her eggs, but definitely growls and puffs when another hen gets near her, i hope she hatches all 9 eggs since this is the first time hatching almost pure ginger reds :) well i inbreeded my pure blood ginger red roo to his daughters which look just like the ginger red hens and im hoping to improve my not so called breed line but its ok :)
