RIR that wont shut up

    I have Six older hens at 25 weeks

    My 2- RIRs are 20 weeks, one is a lot more developed then the other, ie.. combine is 6-8 times the size and darker than the other. She follows me around and just squawks. She even flew on top of a five foot fence , when I was on the other side just to squawk at me. She'll let me pick her up most of the time.

    Not worried just find it amusing and had to share

    I had one like that so I named her after my wife, the kids loved it. A dog killed her, lesson - you need to know when to be quiet

    Are they laying yet?

    Does she squat down when you touch her back?

    Sounds like she wants her some Rooster.

    She's only 4.5 months old and not laying yet
    She does squat every now and then
    And lol I was thinking she needs a rooster

    She is way more mature then her sister
    I'm hoping for a Christmas gift from a couple more chickens
