    So I let my big flock of 9 hens and my little flock of 1 silkie pullet 5 welsummer and Marans pullets and two blue/ splash Ameraucana cockerals. It was much more peaceful then I anticipated there were a few conflicts over food but the little girl showed the big girls the proper respect and I think the little roosters started having crushes on the big girls [​IMG]

    Here is a blue copper Marans and an Ameraucana surveying what they think is their territory after two days of free ranging alone.

    Here is the whole little flock around the food and water I put out!

    Nothing really bad happened they all got along and every body steered clear of silkie girl

    Quote:Sure did peachick found a home for the other rooster from me so Henry's brother is doing great. I am hopefully going to go get two blue ameraucana pullets from Will soon they would be culls though I am not using them for breeding it would be great as replacments for the boys.
