Today I felt brave and brought one of my BO into the new guys side. She is one of my lead hens and seemed not to mind the new birds. She looked around and went into the dog carrier found a piece of bread in it so was happy. She walked around not paying a lot of attention to the new ones. One of the new hens came too close and the BO pecked her. Gosh Orlie my bantam Roo got all flustered and went after the BO. After all that calmed down, he stayed in between the BO and new ones when ever the BO got too close he fluffed all up and stomped his feet? OK in my human mind it seemed as if he was protecting the new birds, was he? I am new to all this drama sso input is great.
