My polish babies are about 7 weeks old now and spending most of the day outside. Today I decided to let one of the lower ranking hens in for a little visit with them. Cricket (the runt with the punk rock hairdo who is super friendly) marched right up to the hen, stretched herself up as tall as she could make herself and tried to stare her down. The hen just stood there looking right back at her so Cricket decided to launch her beak into the hen's face. She got a much bigger beak right back and promptly took off to the other side of the run. That lasted about 30 seconds then she was right back checking out the hen again. She is the funniest little thing. I'll have to be careful because I don't think the bigger hens are going to be as tolerant of her terrible manners.
