Ok thats a bold headline and ill explain and maybe you guys can explain it to me. I have 24 birds in the main flock in the big run/coop. There is 14 x 7 weekers and 10x 11 weekers. ( well the whites may be a little older not sure got em at the feed store) So here is the weird thing...the two groups are made up of the following: 7 weekers: 3 x white cochin pullets 3 x salmon fav pullets 1 x salmon fav roo 3 x SS hamburg pullets 1x SS hamburg roo 3 x buff orp pullets 11 Weekers: 3x white pullets ? breed, may be leghorns, or RIW not sure. 3x RIR pullets 3x production black pullets 1x RIR roo. ( fuzzy aka the fuzzman--> my 6 year old names the chickens...we have one called chickenpoo as well!) In the main coop they all get in there together..there is plenty of room in there and wait for it this is bizarre: They segregate themselves based on breed and colour...how the heck when they were all raised from 1 day old chicks together do they know how to separate into their respective breeds and colours? I mean the buff orps nest here, the RIR roost there, the SSH roost here, the production blacks roost there...you get the picture...all the breeds are separated in the areas in which they choose to roost...it is the strangest thing. When i get the stupid camera going i will take a few pics to show you. Has anyone else seen this kind of thing? During the day they all just hang out as a group and no worries about colour/breed. I just dont understand it.
