    Molly the BR, but a close second (and juggles for first) is Scarlett the RIR. Now, Dottie the GLW guards the feeder and runs off the two youngest pullets that were introduced to the flock late.

    Black Sex Link hen. She's not too buddy-buddy with the others. Leave her alone and she'll leave you alone, but cross her and... [​IMG]

    Next are the RIR triplets.
