The Big Mamma Hen

By

Felton, California, United States

Posted Jan 21, 2017

While she doesn't brood, her dominating size over the rest of the hens and our rooster has her nicknamed the' mamma hen'. She also loves to stand her ground with our 55lb English Shepherd and peck her right in the face no problem. She is a friendly tough big girl who is quite heavy. She lays huge usually double yolk eggs about every other day, even in the winter. She loves to forage through the yard, can't fly very well and is very friendly.
