I read somewhere that NHR were more docile than RIRs. I have since read the opposite. I have two of each coming in my newest chicken shipment. Can some NHR owners give me some clarity? I've had RIR for years, but I found them a bit aggressive towards the Barred Rocks. Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
Are New Hampshire Reds Docile or Aggressive?
My NHR, Mathilda, is the sweetest of my 4 chicken flock. She is on the lowest rung of the pecking order but she doesn't let it get her down. She cackles and makes a fuss each time she lays an egg and I lover her flappy comb. She is not at all aggressive although she was holding her own pretty well yesterday with the new treat ball I hung up for them. Here she is leading the group up the stairs to check out that days treat
