    Several months ago I reported that I have two chicks. Rhoda and Buffy. Rhoda (RIR) would peck me everytime I went to the coop!! They're big now and I let them out during the day to graze because their coop is all dirt now. Anyway, once in awhile, the door would shut and when it came time to roost in the evening, they couldn't get back in and would roost on the top of my old car (by the pen). I would have to carry them to the coop. I was pretty apprehensive about picking up Rhoda, but I had to. Well, I don't know what happened, but she didn't try to peck me!! I was able to carry her to the pen without getting hurt. So, she doesn't go the pot now. lol.

    YAY for Rhoda. I'm glad she's calmed down. Is she giving you a lot of eggs?
