    Firstly let me say that the 'fancy ladies' have adapted very well and are giving as good as they get to the white chickens. I have even been pecked a couple of times when I dared to put my hand into the coop to fill up their food. (And it hurt!!!) Anyhow, my girls are all messy eaters and lots...
