Newbie here. I have learned alot from the forum so far and I thank you all.
I have read alot about introducing new members to an existing flock, but could not find anything on what I am looking to do.
I started my flock with 4 hens. One Rhode Island red, one ameraucana, and two black sex links. They are all about a year old or so. These four hens have been in the coupe for two days now. I decided I want two additional hens from the same breeder to add to the flock. So the new birds would already know the other bird being introduced. Do I still need to separate the new birds from the others? Has the pecking order already been established in the two days?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide!
