Hey fellow chicken lovers! I am excited to see a thread of Idaho chickens. I live in Caldwell & started my chicken project this June while I was bored & had a flashback to my childhood hobby of chickens & ducks. I currently have 1 White Silkie rooster (Sir Lawrence), 2 Buff Orpingtons ( Mabel & Ginger), 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes (Freckles & Winnie). Flock #2 is 1 Red frizzle (Hailey), 1 Splash Frizzle (Smoke), 1 Black Frizzle (Izzy) & 1 Bantam Americana/Cochin (Rose). The chickens are all wonderful, Sir Lawrence valiantly defends his girls w/ his wing circle chicken dance from any perceived threat & the ladies are spoiled little beauty's. My problem is trying to combine the two flocks. Hailey was raised since she was a chick w/ Sir Lawrence & the girls but she was injured so we had her in the house while she rehabbed, dog attack that she lost lots of feathers & could barely walk. She made a full recovery! But the hens won't accept her. They jump on her & pull feathers & Hailey runs back to our garage. So, we bought the other 3 bantams so she would have friends but no luck integrating the two flocks. Any suggestions? I've tried putting them together & supervise but some kind of meanness just comes out w/ the bigger girls.
