    But just to let you know thatn everyone is doing well. Cynthiia (the hen I had already) accepted the others with no problem. The oldest sex link however, attacked Cynthia. Cynthia quickly changed her attitude, and put the other hen in her place and quickly! I was scrambling to get them seperated so no one would get hurt, but it was over almost before it began, with the sex link backing down quickly. Cynthia is definately the "head Chicken." DH kept an eye on them for the rest of the day, and said that there were no more fights...just a minor peck here and there. Hopefully they will work out their pecking order and peace will reign!
    I will try to get some pics of everyone as soon as I can.

    Thanks again and I will keep you updated.
    Sheps.

    P.S.
    Sorry to hear about the hen you lost tonight.

    You have a hen named Cynthia, LOL? Never heard of a chicken named Cynthia! She needs to be a speckled hen, of course! [​IMG]

    Hey sorry I didn't reply sooner, I didn't see this post until today. I am glad they are doing so well. It will take them a couple of days to get the pecking order down but I am sure they will settle soon. I am so happy they have such a good home.
