Chapter One Hi I am Teresa and I am new here. I have 3 rescue chickens. Roxie the barred Rock, Buffy my Orpington, and Rhoda the Rhode Island Red. Rhoda lays every day. Roxie lays 2 or 3 times a week I think and Buffy has layed once since we got her. It could be the other way around but not sure. I have had them for about 2 weeks. This past Sunday I was given 7 more chickens. No names and learning their breeds. The first day, I got an egg from the new chickens. Today, the two new Orpingtons were already on the roost(4pm) I figured they must have been up there all day. Roxie is tearing feathers out of them. So I kept the 3 original chickens in the corner using a corn husk. It was a sight but I was able to keep them corralled for about an hour and I took the two off the roost. As long as I kept them separated, everyone else ate and drank. When I let Roxie go, they were terrified. I had no choice but to put Roxie in time out for the night. She was very good about. She walked right into the cage. I gave her food and water and she will have to stay there until tomorrow since she cant be good. So tell me, is she going to get better? I know they have to find a pecking order. Rhoda pecked at the others but didnt tear out any feathers. So no eggs from anyone today since they are all stressed out. My main concern right now is they all eat and get hydrated until they learn to get alone. Let me know if you have had these problems and what have you done to keep peace amongst the girls.
