    I want to place her in with my silver\\pied Cameo pair. Will the cameo hen fight with the purple hen? enough to do any harm? My pens are 10' wide 20' long 6' tall If I understand the genetics correctly, my silver-pied cameo cock over purple hen can give me cameo hens and cocks India blue s/purple is this correct ?

    I saw my cameos breeding day before yesterday, would it be too late to place her in the pen with the cameos ?

    thanks for any insights

    I dont know if it would be too late to move her but the hens will not fight. One will become dominant, like the males favorite, but they will not fight.
