Well, today was the day. I got sick and tired of the Red Sex-links pecking the feathers off all my other girls. They've picked their backs and bottoms bare, and picked the beards off the EEers so today, the 6 that I've been waiting to start laying have gone into the big coop with their roo Tyrone. I've had them next door to the big coop for a long time and I've had them free range together so they are pretty familiar with each other. I figure that will go pretty smooth. However, I moved the red meanies to the coop that the 6 were in and moved Slick my over sexed EE roo from the little coop (these have never met) to the coop with the Red Sexlinks. He and the girls both need to learn some manners so they get to teach each other. So far the big girls are doing fine with the new six but the red heads and their new roo are having a time of it. This should be interesting to see how this will turn out. I've actually sold 2 of the reds, just waiting for the guy to come get them, but I couldn't wait to make the switch any longer. I've got to let these poor girls get their feathers back. Of course they should be molting before long. I'm worried that the ones that were picked on so much will start picking the new girls though. I'd hate to have to get rid of all of them over this bad habit.
