    first one is a hen, second a boy [​IMG]


    they should be nice to new comers as long as the new comers arent older because if they are then they may be mean unless being used to being around youngsters [​IMG]

    However try it either way the birds may suprise you I brood MANy diff ages together [​IMG]
