    i saw two things today that i wondered if they were related to the breed. one of my 4 wk old bo was in the nest box. she had hollowed out a "nest" & was hunkered down like she was sitting on eggs. it's kinda young isn't it? the other thing was i opened the pop door for the first time to let them come out into a temporary corral inside their run for their first time outside. the buffs were the only ones to try it & all 4 of them tried it. none of the other three breeds took a chance. are the buffs known to be more adventurous?
