|I’ve been around chickens all my life and I love them dearly. Despite that, most of our hens aren’t exactly named except for those with
unique features or personalities. This Rhode Island Red hen isn’t named, but she’s recognized as the busy body. She’s a tall, lean hen
with an upfront attitude. Although not aggressive, she’s the first hen to follow anyone around the chicken yard. She stays at your heels
and vocalizes loudly, seeming possessive of the territory without any pecking. Being tall, she’s a quick runner and ends up taking the
best treats from other, slower hens. We’ve recognized her amongst her similarly colored sisters by the tuft of down on her chest that
always stands out. Her second tell is her demeanor – you can’t beat that uppity gaze of hers.
