    In February, I purchased 9 pullets from a feed store. 6 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Barred Plymouth Rocks. 2 Buffs and 2 Plymouth Rocks ended up being roosters. They all had bigger combs and wattles than the ones I'm keeping, 5 Buffs and 1 Barred Rock.

    The Barred Rock (I named her Gidget) will not have any one else of her breed with her. Should I be concerned about the Buffs bullying her? They have been together since 2 days old and have never had any problems.

    No, they should all be fine....tho there may be some change in the pecking order when you remove birds in the flock, it could take a while to sort out.
