    Hi Tanichca!

    Love the pics! I see multiple roosters there, don't I? How is that working for you? Do they get along? The reason I ask is that I have my olive egger rooster, and I hatched some special color opringtons, and naturally the lavender orp turned out to be a boy. I wonder if he will be able to get along with the current roo in charge, Popeye?

    Any tips?

    You have quite a few different breeds! Looks like you take excellent care of them.

    Quote:Yep, they all get along. Originally i had a top roo, Bubbles, who was aggressive and mean. I got rid of him, and the very very nice Danny took over. There is no fighting whatsoever (unless its between hens) so yes, they do get along.

    Thank you! I was told a Barred Rock or a Dark Brahma but I her black and white was too mottled to be a BR and she obviously has no fuzzy feets! Im so excited to know that! Thank you! Haha shes named Bacon because of the striping when she was a baby [​IMG] All of that lot I named after breakfast foods. Haha [​IMG]
