I asked a question previously about my aggresive Buff Orpington. She is acting like a rooster she lays almost daily but the crowing is really starting to bug my husband and nieghbors. I love her she is my favorite Hen she almost acts like a lap dog when I am outside she follows be around and enjoys being held (only by me). Then we have a Silver Laced Wyndott she is 2 and only lays 1-2 times a week. I actually do not like her to much she's not very friendly pecks me often but doesn't bother any of the other hens. We just got 2 Silkies that are both 5 months old and 1 Bantam and I am unsure of the breed but she has a nice feather dress also 5 months. Our Buff Orpington is very aggresive towards them. We have been talking about getting a new Buff Orpington and giving away Ms. Daisy as her rooster habits are not getting any better she crows all day long. I do LOVE her though . I don't want to see her become some ones stew :'( I'm a vegetarian so I would never eat one of our girls. Our Silver Laced Wyndott is beautiful but I want the hens to be friendly as we do have children and she does peck them. If I get 2 new larger birds I want another Buff Orpingto and a Barred Rock will they be mean to the Silkies and unknown Bantam? Or will the Silkies be at the top of the pecking order since they were here first? I really don't want my Silkies to be bullied.
