From the top: We bought 10 araucana chicks when they were from 1 to 3 weeks old, everything was great. Three weeks later we got 6 RIRs that were all 5 or 6weeks old, put them together... not so great. The RIRs didn't really beat up on the little ones but just kept them in a corner away from food and water so we seperated them till they were about 12 weeks. We put them in the together in the run and coop. The RIRs took control, naturally cause they're bigger, but no bloodshed or depriving them of food. The reds took the highest roost from day one. For the last two nights all the araucanas are on the top roost. Think there could have been a change in the pecking order? They pretty much stay as two differemt flocks while they're in the run. Just wondering.
