I have been raising chickens for eggs for a couple of years and have added "hatchery chicks" to my existing flock in the past months...wasn't a lot of fun watching the bullying however they're all good now. Anyways, I have been asked to take on seven 2+ year old hens to my existing mixed age flock of 7...Am I crazy? We currently are building a sizable coop but can anyone tell me if this is going to be difficult, or have suggestions on ways to do this? I'd like to help the "donors" out (and wouldn't mind having some nice laying hens without the chick rearing 5 months) but I'm not sure if I can pull this off. The others free-range on 2 acres during the day hours so I could keep them separated for a while...HELP!!!! Need guidance here. Thanks, Vickery.
