Cock Fight

Cocks fight when they first meet
As you know I have acquired a new cock for my Dansih Landrace Hens and had to remove the Hamburger cock by separating the large chicken coop into two partitions. Today they have faced one another for the very first time and of course they were not happy to see each other ;) They are separated with a wire fence with small holes so they dont hurt each other. I thought they will be jumping at each other but they did only display for a while and then calmed down :) I hope it stays like this otherwise I will have to build a totally separate coop for the Hamburger Hens.
The hens seem to be very content with the new cock :) He is also very gentle with the small chicks.
The "Old Danish Leghorn" hens are a very calm race and very beautiful :)
One of the ducks started laying on the eggs :) maybe we will get a few ducklings in a month :))

    1. I had one broody hen on 13 eggs and she for some reason stopped laying on them :( We just have no luck with these hens so far :( Maybe I should buy a few more young Dansk hens. Maybe my hens are just too old

    2. Det er ikke til at sige, det er ikke alle vores høner der er lige gode kyllingmødre...
