    Now this is just what I've read but Orpingtons can be bullied and Wyandottes can be aggressive. My original plan was to get these 2 breeds but decided on just getting the orpingtons. I also have EE's that free range with the orpingtons and they get along fine.

    I have both a gold & silver laced wyandotte hen. They are bossy and agressive. I've heard that they can be a nice chicken, but these two girls have even bowed up at my larger roosters and jumped on my new leghorn hens rooster style asserting dominance. I haven't seen that in any of my other birds. I have orps & they are one of my favorite birds. They do get bullied being so docile. If they could just lay one of those HUGE white eggs like the leghorns do my Mom would like them better.
