    and are on top of the pecking order. ill be counting my hens at night and every single rir i have will remind me that they are in the coop by grabbing my finger that is counting.

    I have enough problems with my own, let alone trying to regulate a chicken! [​IMG]

    i took her in to test her (my sister is a vet tec, its nice to have someone on the inside)
    its very hard to regulate her sugars sometimes i mess up and she goes into a flappy creeching fit. it so funny but at the same time its not. she will run around stop sit runn around stop sit flapping creeching all kinds. i really need to record it one of these days and post it.. when she does that its very easy to pick her up for she is not paying any mind to us (like she could) and we give her honey and molasis in a surange.. after a few minutes she calms down and we go on with our day.. i try to keep food close to her at all times but on some days i go to town and dont let them out thats when she gets the worse so i usally get her out and let her free range with out the others.
    i did a lot a research before i even took her in i thought it was a nero thing but then i saw her fits happen more when she doest eat all day until i get back from town. so i had my sister take her in..]
    and blood test comfermed it.. shes so funny. OMG i wished everyone had one. lol
    but is sad also.. just cant help to laugh at her.. "crazy whats going on?" and she screams.

    I have 4 RIR hens and just love them. They do have their own personalities and are so fun to watch! My girls are Lucy, Hermione, Gracie and Betsy.
