Hi, for a variety of reasons, we want to split our flock, and give 3 of our girls away. We have 3 Australorps, 3 hybrids. They are all 2 years old. We are wanting to give away the Australorps, and keep the Hybrids, but want to make sure that that won't make the other girls sad. They aren't the most harmonius group (one of the reasons for our thinking), but just thought I would check with all you experts!

I think they'll be OK. As long as you aren't just getting rid of one on it's own which would suffer, or leaving one on it's own. If you've basically got 2 groups of 3 who don't like the other group very much they'll probably be quite happy.....
