    We went and got 2 black chickens a day before we went and got 4 more from a different farm. And the 4 get along with one of my black ones but keep attacking the other one. I know my Wyandotte is the main one who keeps attacking most[​IMG] this is the 2 black I had first [​IMG] this is the one they keep attacking?

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! With adding new birds they will be sorting out the pecking order so scuffles will happen until they decide who is where in the order. Please do pop by the what breed gender section, here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this I'm sure members there will be able to help you.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    I'm not sure but think one of your blacks may be a male. Another good reason to post photos at "what breed or gender is this."

    [​IMG] glad you have joined us.

    Do try to get side views of those in question for posting under what breed/gender.

    If the attacks are overly aggressive, then separate the bully - a dog cage in the coop/run - until the situation defuses can help.
