Our 8 girls (4-barred, 4-RIR), have the run of our small enclosed yard we made for them. Our problem is two fold. 1. Our girls (barred) have been here with us since early July, we since have built their coop, (i will post pics later,once I know how), anyway, they absolutely love us and we love them. Early this month we went and got four more (the Redheads- as we called them- RIR) They all have names, but again once we learn how to add pics, we will include all our girls and their pics/with names. Now here's the problem they are not getting along too well the barred girls are always pecking at the redheads, and dont leave them in peace through out they day. especially at night at roosting time. What can we do, we don't have extra or seperate space the place any of them? 2. our yard is becoming a muddy mess, what can do about this also? what should we put down for better footing for them and us?
