    She is a robust RI Red hen, 1 year old, a consistent layer of large eggs, but needs a new home.

    I'm in Mtn. View CA. Please consider whether you are prepared to collect her from there, before responding... (if anybody does?)

    This hen has gotten aggressive toward her 2 coop-mates (both hens), and the animal behaviorist we consulted, recommended we place her with a new home where there is a rooster and more hens, or a good number of hens around such that she will not be the alpha any longer.

    If interested, and can provide a good home, please email. We are not charging anything for her, just want a good home for her. Thanks.

    BTW, she is excellent with people. Often sits on my shoulder while I garden.

    Where is Mountain View? I have two roos that would probably love to whoop her into shape! [​IMG]

    Well there is a Mountain Valley in San Bern. County and then another Mountain Valley that is up by San Jose... Big difference. One I would drive to and the other I wouldn't! [​IMG]

    Edit: Nevermind... I just emailed him.

    "Mtn. View CA" is near San Jose, in Northern California. I think you mis-read Mtn. View to be Mtn. Valley in the original post? Anyway...

    CarriBrown, I just sent you an email. Still interested... if she's in Mtn. View CA?

    wooden_pony,

    I sent you a PM back Saturday 12/1 in the morning. It hasn't appeared as "Sent" under my messages (?), so if you don't have something from me, please let me know and I'll try again. But...

    Murray McMurray Hatchery, vaccinated, days old.
    Alpha-hen behavior should disappear in a new setting.
    If a problem arises, we want her back!
