    I recently bought 5 chicks, 3 Rhode Island Reds, and 2 Golden Sex-Links. Will They Get Along? I just want to make sure they don't kill each other [​IMG]

    I don't see why not if they are young chicks that are raised together. Chicks will establish a pecking order, so there might be some pecking issues going on. All chickens have this order, so I don't see any problems unless you have more than one cockerel(rooster) in the bunch, then you will have some issues.

    They should get along ust fine. There will be some packing, chest bumping( yes even with hens) untill they know who is boss...I find it comical to watch as long as the pecking doesnt get out of hand. Enjoy your new friends! Hours and hours of fun!
