I love how they look but I wish I could calm mine down. Chicken sedatives anyone? They are sweet once I have them in hand and have calmed them down but they try to break their necks when I need to be in the coop cleaning bedding and feeding. Poor frazzled nerve babies.
It's dark out now, but I'll get some in the morning. I put her in with 2 other small young OE pullets (even though shes a bit big) because the bigger hens were picking on her so shes a bit plucked. She gets along great with the other 2 though and I dubbed her the new Zapdos (since the third OE pullet mysteriously died). Pokemon fans should get it, LOL.
Quote:Ralph was picked on at first when she was smaller, then we got 2 buff orpingtons. They took up for her, every time she was picked on the 2 buffs went after the ones that were bullying. Now she handles her own!
