I have 4 Buff Orpingtons. They are taming well. I also have 4 Gold Laced Wyandottes that just aren't getting it. They freak every time they are handled. The chicks are all around two weeks old now. Question 1--One of the Wyandottes is the same size as the other three, it is still in down and just starting to get its tail and flight feathers. Could it have been younger then the others or maybe just a very slow developer? Question 2--Since the Orpingtons are taming well and the Wyandottes are not, will they end up picking on the Orpingtons? I am begining to wish I had gotten all Orpingtons like I wanted, but hubby liked the Wyandottes. I am hoping I have an Orpington rooster, because I am wanting to keep the Orpington breed true, and do not mind if the Orpingtons cross breed with the Wyandottes. Question 3--The chicks keep going through moments of leaping at each other as if they are have small battles. They will all do this for a while, then quit and all is fine. Is this normal? I am so enjoying my babies and this forum. I am glad I found it.
