I did lots of research in the spring and decided to go with RIRs. I had to order 15. They were nice at first, but now they are just all mean b*tches. They are not friendly to us and they are especially mean to any newcomer chickens. And I think they killed some of my 3 month olds that I thought were old enough to be with them. Ughh Anyone else have similar problems with RIRs? They are about 24 weeks old now, and no eggs yet either. I hope they taste good! I have a 19 week old EE that is the most lovely chicken ever. Wish I could clone her!
