    Hi there a friend is gifting me this chicken. It would be my first and I'm kind of reluctant as he shared that it's a little aggressive with his other hens. I'd like to learn more about it since I'm planning to have more chickens and do not want to start on the wrong foot with this one.

    gamebird mix - if your flock is getting along well now, do you want to introduce an aggressive hen?
