The 'mean' little red hen

We have about 100 egg-laying hens here at Wishful Acres Farm. This gal here has the biggest personality of all our red hens. She sits inside the coop in this corner, on a few eggs, and throws an absolute fit anytime one of us enters the coop. She fluffs up her feathers & makes mean growling noises at us! Just look at her tail feathers standing up in this picture.

She pecks at our hands when we take eggs from under her. We tell our sons that she's just a bit "snarky"... mean, hahaha.

Just sharing some of the funny things that go on around here!

  1. I WAS WONDERING IF PERHAPS THIS HEN IS JUST A FRUSTRATED 'BROODY' HEN BY NATURE? IF SHE HAS A STRONG MATERNAL INSTINCT, HAS SHE EVER BEEN ALLOWED TO HATCH ANY YOUNG AND RAISE THEM? PERHAPS THAT WOULD SETTLE HER DOWN, EH? [PARDON THE ALL CAPS - NOT YELLING, JUST SEE THEM BETTER THAN REGULAR.]
