    I'm a new member to the Back Yard Chickens website and am so excited! I have only 7 chickens but they are my world :) everyday when I look something up about chickens, I always check this site first because there are so many useful comments!

    I do! The only problem I have is that the barred rocks are a little..... Aggressive. I know there is a pecking order, but they always pick on the lowest hen, Cinnamon :( once the barred rocks are done eating, Cinnamon goes up and tried to eat :) but even if the barred rocks are a ways away, they go and scare off my little Cinnamon then go back to what they were doing [​IMG] @Mountain Peeps
