Hey y'all, just a little chicken update. I had an injured chicken, she had a torn spot on her cheek. She has healed nicely, it looks good, almost well. I took her out this morning and let the buffs out of the chicken house, and put her down with them. Stayed for a little while to make sure they remembered her, they seemed to be okay with her.
I let the sussex out of the brooder, scooted them down the stairs, got them out in the yard for the day. I sure hope the buffs and the sussex will get this whole chicken hierarchy (sp?) down soon. Seems if one group gets too close to the other group, one of the buffs chases the sussex for a minute. The sussex are growing nicely, I just hope they are big enough to handle themselves soon. We are going to Florida in a month, and they need to get along in that house and run for a week!
