In the Brooder
- Sep 3, 2014
So my 8 girls quickly turned into 6. One was eaten by a predator before I picked them up from the previous owner, and another was being dangerously bullied by the others, so I found her a happier home with a calmer flock. We built the coop for 8, and I'm trying to convince my husband that I was robbed, and I need 2 more! I have two Australorps and four Rhode Island Reds. Based on how they treated the poor bullied one, they can be, well, bullies. I would like a different breed, but I want to keep the peace as well as possible. What breeds would "hold their own" with my girls? Or does it make a difference? I'm looking at Jersey Giants, or Cochins. I don't want anything overly aggressive, but not so passive that my others will have a new target to chase around.
