    I have some RIR's and MAY be getting some Aracauna's. Numbers are equal as they are 6 and 6. Thae Ara's are about a month behind the RIR's. Can I expect any trouble between them other then maybe a usual tussel or so?
    Thanks

    I though this thread would be about neighborhoods where everyone raises chickens--like the HOA will let you have a rooster! [​IMG]

    I don't think the breed has THAT much to do with chicken integrations. Keep them visible but separated by wire for 3 weeks, then integrate. OR free range them together until they get along. Gonna find that page....
