Back in September I was in Tractor Supply and came across a sale of baby chicks... I was not strong enough to resist. So home came a Red Ranger, 5 RIR and 3 Buff Orpingtons despite my woeful lack of chicken knowledge. Luckily we already had an old coop with 5 hens that are my father in laws. Fast forward 14 weeks and my little raptors are prowling around almost 2 acres and lurking at the back door and basement windows. I've read many places that Buffs are supposed to be docile and have a tendency to be picked on when in an assorted flock. Mine are completely the opposite they rule within our baby group pushing around the Red Ranger pullet that is easily double their size, and they (all 3 BO pullets) push around the RIR pullets and young cockerel. I know all chickens are different but has anyone noticed their Buffs forming squads?
