Hi, I just got some Barred Rock chickens and was wondering any advice???
Welcome to BYC!
How old are the birds you have just gotten? This will be a factor into advice regarding their immediate care. Are you new to keeping poultry entirely or just new to the breed of these birds? Is there anything specific you are concerned or curious about or are you looking for general poultry keeping advice?
I have 3 hens and three roosters I purchased off Murray McMurray hatchery, they are always friendly to humans, always run toward you to see what you got for them to eat, but they are little bossy with other chicks who are not Barred Rocks ( in my case sulmtaler, and Dark Cornish chicks) who grew up together. I've read on online that it's common to have Barred Rock rooster to become aggressive especially as they mature but I mine are four months old and I will wait and see.
The chic are about a week and a half. I'm a new chicken owner.
