...and came home with two new hens. So we found a good deal on Craig's list and went to see the coop this guy was selling. I bought it because we wanted more hens. While we were there, I seen two of the prettiest Ameraucana's in his pen. Joking around I asked him how much and he priced them to me for $15 each. A few bucks more than I should have paid, but dang these gals are beautiful. The are just old enough to start laying and he said that he got his first EE yesterday from one of them. So anyways....we get the coop home and head down to introduce the two new galls to our small flock. We have two RIR's and two Barred Rocks. As soon s I let the Ameraucana's out the two RIR's gang attacked one of them. It looked like to roos going at it. I felt like I was at an illegal cock fight! The Ameraucana held her ground but she was no match for two at one time. So we got them separated and the queen of the roost (one of our big Barred Rocks) decided it was time to draw blood. She went over and attacked the same one and kicked the living **** out of that Ameraucana. No mercy and no holds bared. We had to let the 4 girls go up for the night and then let the two new Ameraucana's stay in the 20x10 run. We put a iglue doghoue in there for them to sleep in tonight. Tomorrow the other 4 gals will get to free range while the new ones get use to the run and the coop. We might try this for a week and hopefully when I get the new coop added to the run, they can all get use to the new coop together (in peace). If not then I will leave both coops attached to the run and let the Ameraucana's live in the smaller one and the other 4 gals live int he bigger one. Tell me if this is normal fighting for hens - Video here I'm thinking my original four are haters!
