QUOTE=PunksTank;2481473]Chevaux - We're pretty close, I guess I'll try it, but should I wait a few days for her to learn where "home" is? It won't do any harm to wait.
If everything works out I may get another for her to bea friend, we have small chickens (Amacanas?) at a horse rescue I work at, I wouldn't mind having a couple of those, but would the size difference cause fights or anything? Is it all just trial and error? Chickens do have their pecking order but if they have enough space everybody finds their place and they get along regardless of size (it seems at night when everybody is roosting that all differences are put aside).
Is her breed typically used for eggs or meat? Or both? If she is a Rhode Island Red, it's a breed that's been around along time. Most of the older breeds are/were dual purpose.[/QUOTE]
