JP, those Buff hens are the nicest birds - and the roos are equally nasty! Stumpy was a BO, a huge beast, and mean as all get out! We really shook up the pecking order out there when we ate him, Queenie, who was the top hen, was knocked right down to the bottom of the order! That's what I mean about the pecking order getting shoken up, I don't think you'll have that problem, as you don't have a roo. HennyPenny even beats up poor Queenie, and she used to be the lowest hen. Abby is the other BO hen, she's a sweetie, always running up to me looking for treats.
