Hey all!!! I am in need of some advice. I have 3 pens, my goal is to have 2. The big house and pen has my 7 1 year old BO hens. The smaller house and pen has a total of 11, 3-4 month old all different breeds. There are 8 Delaware Blue Hens, 1 WCB Polish, 1 RIR and 1 Partridge cochin roo. The 3rd pen is a temporary one for my 2, 2 1/2 month old EE girls. The problem I have, The Orps pick on the mixed flock (the older babies) but not bad, only when it comes to eating and stuff, but I feed the seperate now...they can all free range together. The Mixed flock pick on the EE girls. . My main goal is to have 1 pen of JUST the Delaware Blue hens. I have 7 pullets and 1 roo. The other pen will have 7 BO's, 2 EE's, 1 RIR, 1 polish and the cochin will be the roo for that flock. The 2 pens will be kept completly seperate being that I want only purebred Del. Blues. Day on , day off free ranging of both flocks. 1 day Blue hens, 1 day other flock. How to I accomplish this? With all the pecking and picking going on, I am wonderng if my plan will EVER happen... EDIT* I wanted to add that the EE have never free ranged with everyone else. They have been in their pen the whole time.
