I recently purchased three hens from a farm that, unfortunately, trim the beaks of their chickens. At the time, I didn't have any alternatives as the only farm with adult hens in my area that didn't trim beaks didn't have any hens available until the fall. However, that same farm just emailed me saying that they are now able to give me some chickens - just in time, as I was considering adding two to three more hens to my flock. I'd much rather support a farm that doesn't trim the beaks of their chickens so of course I'd love to get chickens from her. However, I'm concerned about how whole-beak and trimmed beak chickens would get along. It seems to me the "normal" chickens would take advantage of the other girls who wouldn't be able to defend themselves. Thoughts?
