    Went to the auction tonight and my favorite seller was there.
    She is the only one there that I know for a fact has a clean flock.
    I bought 4 big fat BR hens from her. Combs are bright red and she said they were laying an egg every other day.

    I put them in the new coop with the 8 week old RIRs and there was not even a skirmish at all.
    I guess in the morning they will sort out the pecking order in the run.

    Pics later.

    I have 5-- 4 ladies and their Roo... unfortunately, none are very friendly and hate teh other chickens, and Bubba (the Roo) Is a downright wuss!!!
    But they are big, fat and pretty-- and will hopefully lay soon....
    So if yours are integrating that easily, you will have a decent flock!!!
