Another of the Sussex breed, Ruby is a buff and our front cover "Hens in the City" model. Of all our hens Ruby has the most classic "chicken" look and profile of all the girls. Over the past month she has visually matured the most.
Positive points: very chicken looking, superb hen hoover (she eats everything)
Negative points: greedy bugger, quite adept at stealing food from anybody if she gets the chance, the most stand offish of all the birds and last to feed from the hand. Bit of a bully, she puts her wings up and rushes everybody (apart from Cybil), gives them a peck and then rushes off. The silkies get vaguely frightened however Margot has got completely bored with it and refuses to be intimidated. Ruby however still thinks its great fun.
Ruby thinks that she is number one but in fact in the real pecking order she in probably number three or four - she and Margot are vying for the post of number two Sussex and I think that Margot probably has it.
