I have 4 road island reds and 2 banies. How long will it take fir them to get along with each other?
Hi and welcome to BYC form northern Michigan
How old are your birds? How long have they been together?
Welcome to the site, glad you have joined us!
It would depend on a few things, plus just the chickens themselves. How old are they?
Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined us!
It would be best for you to use a temporary wire partition in the run to separate them - this gives them a chance to become familiar with each other without blood shed. Usually it's good to wait until the smaller chickens catch up on growth the older ones but, bantams will not reach that size.
when you do try them together - sometimes it's best to do so when they are free ranging or in a large run, so if any are bullied they have places to escape to. Put out an extra feeder / waterer in case the larger chicks won't allow them access.
Greetings from Kansas Wldkeith, and ! Best of luck to you and your flock!
