Hi all, I have four chickens in Hartford CT, we started this experiment last summer after years of wanting chickens I finally convinced the family to give it a go. We got 4 nine week old pullets from another backyard farmer. I have one buff orpington, one white/lavendar orpington (she has white feathers but grey legs), one white wyandotte, and one blue ameraucana. We built a lovely little coop for them in our backyard and I let them free range in the yard for a few hours every day. All of them are laying now (the ameraucana only started laying in February) and we love the eggs. I have four children and they love the girls too! I am having one bit of trouble as the wyandotte seems to be bullying the ameraucana. She is almost bald on the top of her head! I have seen the bully do it so I know that is what it is from. I am trying now to seperate the bully from the rest of the girls but it is kind of tricky as the space I have for her (a small dog crate) is far from ideal. I am thinking of putting her in a seperate space but havenot had time to build it yet! Any tips on what I can do? My other thought was to get rid of her (maybe find her a home elsewhere) as she is making me crazy. So glad to be here with all the other chicken lovers!
