    [​IMG] Hi everyone, I'm a newbie to the chicken world. Just got 6 hens, 1 is laying and the other five should be laying by November, there are 3 bantams, 1 RI Red, 1 Barred Rock, and 1 Maran. I let them free range my yard during the day, I am loving watching their personalities. I have one the barred rock that has taken control of the flock, the others are afraid of her, should I be concerned.


    Thanks
    Tony

    Welcome! Usually one hen (if it is a hen?) will dominate. That would be the pecking order. Enjoy!
