Hello everyone! I am new to the chicken scene but jumped in head first. I started by purchasing some baby Orp Buffs from the local feed bin. I also picked up a existing flock of 2 year old RIR's. 9 Hens and 1 Roo. His name is Rusty. My Orp Buffs are 8 weeks old now and living is a separate coop connected to the larger coop. I am afraid I and going to have to meat out the 9 RIR Hens. One because of their age and another is because I do not think I am going to be able to merge the two flocks together. They are still producing about 4-6 eggs a day. Along with having 14 teenage Orp Buffs I also have 5 teenage Guineas that are in the coop with my Orps. They are getting along great I might add. My main question tonight is does anyone think I will be able to keep Rusty (My RIR Roo) and merge him with my Orp Buffs as the Head of Household without any casualties?
