Are my birds racists?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

We picked out 7 RIR's and 3 Americaunas. They grew up together in a pen with 300 other 8-10 week old chicks.

We've had them getting close to a week now, and the RIR's are pounding the americaunas.

The reds chase them all over the place, won't let them eat or drink, and there's a lot of feather plucking.

 

Will they all grow out of this after some point? Or should I see if the guy will take them back and trade me for 3 more reds?

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

I just talked to the guy that I got the birds from. he told me if he has any reds left, he'll trade out the americaunas.

He told me the red are very aggressive birds.

I don't know, but If I was him and knew it would be a bad mix, I would have deterred me.
