So I bought some chicks at the local feed store. The five chickens I have now were all purchased as older birds so forgive me for the dumb question. Any how, I got 2 Black Australorp's, a Buff Orpington (the youngest chick out of them all), a Barred Rock and I believe they are 2 Ameraucana's (they have fluffy cheeks, the feed store guy said they were Cuckoo Maran's, but they also had Ameraucana's on their list of birds so that is what I think they are, although what to I know, I've never seen a Maran or an Ameraucana. I've only had bantams so this is my first adventure in big chickens, although my parents had them from time to time (we had RI Reds growing up). Any way, they are at my parents house right now, LOL I talked my mom into raising them for me because I didn't have a spot in my house to keep them and I didn't want my husband to know I bought more birds LOL. So my mom told me that they are picking on the Barred Rock a lot. I figured they would have picked on the Buff Orpington because she was the younger, smaller bird. Is she sick? My mom says she is eating and drinking fine but she seems to be getting picked on more then any other bird. My mom is beside herself that she is getting picked on.
