hello Lesley, re your message to the group about introducing new chickens, in my limited experience any new chickens introduced into an established group will upset the pecking order for a while and there will most likely be some fighting but they get over it eventually

I need to choose between 2 roosters soon, I have a barnevelder and a brown leghorn, both have yet to crow and not aggressive with each other yet, but which one?

Hi Everyone i am now selling my Poultry Health Tonic and Natural Wormer which is what I feed to my hens to keep them healthy, the eggs strong and the hens free of worms. You can feed ad lib or sprinkle over their daily grain. As it is completly natural there is no withholding time for the eggs. It is on my Green Shopping page @ www.greenurbanliving.co.nz

off to Raglan for Easter, and Hermione and 3 chicks may come home to
auckland with us... Unless we construct a run while we're down there...
My sister is over chickens and roosters rampaging the gardens. I'm going to integrate our shavers with our pet bantams sometime this winter. For now they are housed next to each other, part of the process of
getting to know each other again. Been finding sticky eggy bits amongst
the eggs in the laying box. Wonder if it is one chook in particular breaking and eating? Getting about 1- 3 eggs a day from 4 chooks, it's
their 2nd laying season. Midnight and Henny are laying too, pretty impressive for a cou!ple of old birds!

what differences did you want to compare?
My four are all sisters, and they are all different. Theres bossy boris who thinks she belongs in the house not the coop and will even take on dogs, theres dora who goes broody, boots who just tags along with whom ever she can find and number four who always disappears over the fence and stubbornly refuses to lay in the coop.

We are thinking about keeping chickens. ...I was wondering whether it is better to get 4 of the same type or get different ones so we can compare teh differences?
