    I ordered an assortment of Long tails and Oriental chickens. I don't really know much about them. Does anyone have any information about them? How do they do with other chickens? These are some of the breeds I could get: Dark Aseels, Saipan Jungle Fowl, Black Shamos, Black Breasted Red Cubalayas, Silver Phoenix, Black Sumatras, Red Shoulder Yokohamas.

    I am supposed to get them tomorrow, are they gonna fight with other chicks if they are in the same pen?

    Not in the brooder. I have never owned any of those breeds, but I have owned game fowl, the young cockerels started fighting each other at about 6 weeks.

    Would the hens fight each other also? Does anyone have any pictures of them?

    Young hens will probably get along. Mature game hens are fighters, sometimes. I had two game hens that hated each other, but as long as they had lots of room, they just kind of avoided each other.

    Okay, I hope that they won't fight!
