    Need advice on how to get all my chickens to get along, I have 4 sets of hens,
    1. 8 silkies
    2. 10 isa reds
    3. 7 bantams
    4. 6 wyandottes
    The reds are the oldest 1 year old the others are all 6 - 8 months old, when I moved to our new house I didnt have a place to put them all together so I had them separated like the list says. I now want to build a huge coop and fenced area for them all to be in together but everytime I try to put any off them together they fight terribly and I end up putting them back separate agin into their origanal groups. Will they ever be able to live together or am I stuck having 4 coops and fenced areas????

    Anytime that the composition of the flock changes, the pecking order will be established again.
