I'm sure that isn't the right wording... we had a family of four silkies (3 pullets and a roo, all siblings) and added four white silkies (3 pullets and a roo, all siblings as well), we decided to integrate our flock much sooner than the 1 month lock down as we know where the whites came from and are confident that they're 100% healthy. They've been residing together in a 20'x20' run with minimal fighting, establishing pecking order, etc... but everytime I take treats out to them our 'bigs' wont let the 'littles' have any. At all. At first I thought it was because ours are used to treats/scraps/extras and the newbies weren't, but after watching them I took some oatmeal out tonight and the bigs dug right so I took the bowl of veggie peels/apple/and egg noodles from this afternoon over to the newbies (who always stay together and always away from the others) and they dug right in, until one of the bigs came and chased them away from the food again. How long will this go on? Should I be seperating them again, or atleast seperating them to eat? The bigs are going on 6 months and the littles are coming up on 3 and are much tinier. Thanks for reading this novel!
