In the Brooder
- Apr 19, 2015
Maybe I'm wrong, but I've always thought red stars were fairly docile. I just got two red star hens. And, they are brutal! I'm not sure I want to introduce my leghorn pullets into the backyard coop/run for a perminant home. The little interaction that I allowed was quickly STOPPED. Regardless of space, the hens won't let the younger ones eat, drink, or even be seen. Even with multiple feed/water stations, the younger ones weren't allowed. Any suggestions? Anyone else have aggressive red stars?
