    The flock keeps them in line but they are now sleeping on the top 2 bars of the chicken ladder with the rest of the ladies.

    Thank you - they do grow fast. The black one was a rescue ( abandoned at the local high school ) thought maybe it was a australorp as it was growing , but its comb doesn't look right for that. I assume a mix breed. maybe an orph or australorp cross of some kind. I posted in the what breed section but never got a clear answer. She was my first rescue chick I have kept. [​IMG]
