    My daughter loves, loves, LOVES the Ayem Cemani breed. And this morning, an ad went up in our local online classifieds from someone living only 30 minutes away that was selling a couple of 8 week old pullets. So, off we went to look. And came home with the two pullets and an 8 month old cockerel, as well.

    Ugh, they're in quarantine for now, but I need to find somewhere to put them soon!

    Can I put them in with my salmon faverolles? How aggressive are they? Would they beat up my shy little girls?

    Also, do you think my husband will notice? Shhhhh.. maybe if we're very, very quiet, he won't. Because we were DONE for the year!

    Yeah, right..

    Mine are pretty chill (3 girls and a boy). They are pretty small for LF birds; the same size as my bantam cochin, who is housed with them. I let them free range (supervised) with my mixed flock of bantams, an EE, and a favaucana, and they all get along. They tend--as least mine do--to stay more with their own, but don't mess with the others. The rooster? He just likes to mate with everyone, no problem there! :lau Good luck!

    If you do put them with those chickens... At least give them a fraction of the box just to be safe
