Exactly...Reds dont always get along with other colours of chickens. Red birds are more aggressive.

I sold all my red hens.

My Rhode Islands seem to be pretty good. I've seen one be grumpy. But I've seen the buffs get aggressive too.

Yes, For sure all hens can be grumpy with each other. My experience was more negative with the RR hens and Isa Browns.

If yours really are just bickering as they will do? Then you have no problems.

You know what I'm afraid will happen? I'll get rid of my old 5 hens and find out they weren't the ones! Ugh! I went out yesterday and one of my RI had a blood spot on her wing. I put saddles on all 3 of the ones getting picked on, it's been pretty cool here, but it's supposed to be high 80's in a couple of days. Don't you think it will be too hot for the saddles to be on?
