    In my group of 12 i have a mother hen.

    The night that we put them in their new pen we had to shut them in because it was all different. Then the 2nd night i was sat watching them and the RIR mutt lol started to round them all in. The 2nd night she did the same and even took them all up the ramp before going up herself.

    I was like OMG how cute is that. I presume she was doing this as there is no cockerel.
