    Hi, I am a new member. I currently have two chickens purchased from a poultry farmer a few months ago. Not sure of their breeds. I am looking to purchase 2-3 more chickens that are good egg layers and docile so I can easily intergrade them into my small backyard flock. The breed isn't important to me.
  2. Not sure of your coop size? Are your birds Bantam or standard sized hens.?
    Post pictures if you can. Their is lots of Docile breeds of Chickens. I like Orpingtons, Ameruacana. Speckled Sussex, Barred Rocks. Introducing chickens takes time. Chickens need a look no touch setting for a few days or weeks? Even after being in the look no touch pen they will still fight to establish a pecking order.
