    [​IMG]I have a flock of a variety oc chickens, aracauna, black alstrop, red star, brahma,cochin,specked sussex,white,barred, and partidge rocks. and probably a few I didn't mention. For this entire flock of 28 chickens I have 1 bantam roo. Been with them for awhile no prob. But recently I added to the flock 2 bantam golden polish. Poor things are never allowed to venture outside of the coop.[​IMG] Is this normal. Will they eventually let the polish be part of their flock or not. Breaks my heart that the other chickens are so mean to the 2 polish. They are so cute:love
