Chicken attacking ALL the other chickens - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Some Red hens do not like any other colour of chicken other than red...I got rid of all my Red hens and will never have them again.

Everyone got along fine after that.

If you have a mixed flock? Never have reds too.

Um... that's not always true, though RIR do have a rep for being aggressive.  My red hens are middle of the pecking order.  No more or less aggressive than any other of my hens, though, I've never met a RIR that I liked.  

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.

Thritto!

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
