I just got 3 big chickens

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

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?

Chances are they wont kilk eachother.
Byt put the big hens in a small pen first.

The bantams may realize their outsized and back down,but it dependsbon what they think.
