Last Wednesday I became mother hen to 5 - 5 month old pullets. One buff orp, one golden comet, and three black austrolorps. The man I bought him from had 7 pullets for sale, but my plan was to get a rooster so I didn't want to overcrowd the coop by getting all seven. The girls are just wonderful! Friendly, well behaved, obedient. I spend a lot of time sitting in their run with them, talking to them and giving them treats. I have decided I don't want to risk ruining this relationship by getting a rooster. So now that I have nixed that idea I am thinking about going back and getting the other 2 pullets. If I do that will they remember each other and resume their pecking order? Its been slightly less than a week since they have all been together.
