I'm still new at this chicken thing. Brought our chickens home this past Mon afternoon. My neighbor has 12 hens and a rooster. Anyways I will be adopting 2 of her RIR Hens. The rooster it seems hates these 2 and constantly picks at them till they bleed, and won't allow them in the coop. She told me the story and I felt so bad I offered to adopt these 2 chickens. So by the end of today I will now have 6. This chicken thing is very addictive. Gonna have to sell eggs now. I hope they get along okay with my 4 hens.
