In the Brooder
- Apr 5, 2017
I have 4 hens the 3 Rhode island hens who are very passive. and 1 sexlink who is very aggressive. The Sexlink became dominate after we got rid of the roosters 2 weeks a go she peck at my wife now. (yes birds can tell male and female in humans my brothers raises Macaws and other parrots has has confirm this). Mono our Sexlink hen is the alpha female. A farmer is bring us 2 or 3 Amercana aka eater eggers that are slightly older than out existing flock. Now I here how difficult it is to introduce chickens to flock but all the case I here had a rooster in the mic. how about when they are all hens. Mono keep to her self when there where roosters she was more independent and was a sweet chicken now she is a terror to my wife most of all his she doesn't get meal worms blue berries or other treats. I feel introducing slightly older hens will be more of a help that a hindrances and may put Mono in her place. But do hen fight like roosters do. How badly can hens fight I personally have only seen roosters go at each other. What i need to know can I introduce hens to a flock that is only hens quicker. Is it easier minus any roosters.
