    She has turned in hell chicken for everyone else in the coop. I have been going out 4-5 times a day and removing all eggs in hopes of breaking her. NO LUCK, today she is now pecking everyone and growling. So I gave up, moved her to an extra larg dog kennel on our porch (fully enclosed with screen) gave her 3 eggs, food, water and told her to have fun. Of course I don't have my new roo yet so the only one with access to the flock in my silkie roo. Should make for an interesting hatch (if any do). Gave her 2 small eggs and 1 large green. The flock is silkie, mille fluer d'uccle, EE's and others.
