hello and thanks for all the help. 4 ri reds 14,12 weeks 2 buff orps 8weeks. i tried againg today to let the ri reds out in the back yard with the buffs and the dogs nina 120lb german shepard and grace a goofy looking mut who both love the buff but not the ri reds. as soon as i let them out two of the actually attacked grace then the other two attacked the buffs then nina went into protect mode and it was all i could do to hold her. the buffs seem to like everybody and will even jump in your lap. but my ri reds peck and are mean to everything but me is this normal and will they change? i realy would like to let them free range.
