Hi, I am new to the forum and to raising chickens. I ordered six buff orpington chicks and they are now four weeks old. I thought it was suspicious when I got them because they were striped. I contacted the company and sent a picture. It turns out that they are Buff Star (some kind of lighter red star?). I thought I would just give them away to my neighbor and I told the company that they could send me a reship of the orpingtons. I notice my neighbors hens are not very pleasant to each other (some are missing many feathers and some blood) and now I am attached to the red stars and I am not sending them over to the neighbor. I got the six orpingtons this past monday. They are 1 week old today and the red stars are four weeks. The Red stars look HUGE and I have split the brooder box in half by putting a big piece of wood between them and each side has their own food and water and red light. How am I going to do this? Is it conceivable that these 12 will be able to get along, how do I introduce them? I'm scared. Those orpingtons are so small and those stars look like raptors.
