    A guy in town was wanting to downsize his gals so he gave me 5 barred rocks and 1 rhode red. The red one is so nice, she came instantly to eat out of my hand. But its funny to watch them... there were some major fights and Red took every one of my hens that wanted to fight her.. sometimes beat out 2 at a time... shes STRONG... my chickens are free range and these new girls have never been out of the coop.. so its fun to watch them come to the open door and then run back in.. still havent ventured out yet, but they have checked out every nesting box in the shed. lol
