When our chickens first went to their new home, Ashley reported that there had been no fighting between my hens and her hens but they were staying segregated. My chickens hung out together, her chickens hung out together but there was no socializing between the two groups. She said that at first my chickens would hang back and wait for her chickens to go into the the coop at night. Once her chickens were all settled inside, my chickens would go inside.
Today I went back to the dentist and Ashley told me the family had blended. She said that they are all together now and even they cannot tell which Red Stars were mine and which were hers. She had one Easter Egger and I had two and she said mine have fuller “cheek” feathers than hers did so she can tell mine apart.
I figured that the move would cause my chickens to stop laying for a few days but she said that bringing my chickens into her family also caused her chickens to stop laying for a few days but she said everyone is laying now, everyone is happy.
Just thought you might want to hear that happy report.
