I have had two silky/gold lace wyandotte since last year and when I saw someone that had to get rid of her chickens because of trouble with her neighbors I sent my husband over to buy them so that our little 'flock' could have a respectable number of chickens. I knew our two were smaller because of the mix the woman I got them from said they were but I did not quite realize how huge regular sized chickens are.
I don't want my little bantys to get killed. Normally people are worried about the new chickens in the introduction but I'm terrified that the three I just got will kill my established two chicken flock. I just got two gold lace wyandottes and a white leghorn.
Right now the bantams are in the coop and the giants are in the run. When I get home from work I'm going to but the bantams in a baby gate next to the coop but I'm worried that the new girls will think the coop is theirs and be more territorial.
Should I just get another coop? Or is it possible to not end up with dead chickens here?
