Austra white and California grey

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need some advice on the California Grey and the Austra white. I recently bought two pullets but I'm not sure if I made the right decision. They are nervous and skittish more so than the others. I realize that this is due to the leghorn genes but will they play nice with the others. Will they calm down and be friendly. I have Easter Eggers, barred rocks, speckled Sussex, black copper Marans, and a black sex link. I thought the EEs were skittish but these are ridiculous. Should I keep them or replace them???? Thank you in advance.hmm.png

It's not going to hurt anything to keep them in the flock.  I have a couple hatchery hybrids that are flighty, nervous wrecks, but the lay a lot of eggs and don't bother any of the other chickens. I don't particularly like them, but I like their eggs in the middle of the winter when the others have all but stopped laying.
