Killer ISA's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Have been trying to introduce a light Brahma and a silver laced wyandotte for two months now. The 5 ISA's and banty rooster killed the Brahma today. They've been separated all this time till today, and the two have been avoiding the big girls so I thought they'd be fine. Now the big girls are after the y and dot very aggressively now. Should I sell her? Or get her a big rooster, then introduce the two to the flock then? Cause that banty doesn't do anything he should being a rooster, but he needed a home

was the Brahma pecked to death, I would personally try putting the rooster with the Wyandotte and see if he takes a liking to her, he may then try to defend her, I would then start adding the other hens one at a time, until they begin to accept her, integrating adults can be difficult and requires a lot of patience and supervision.

She was. I also tried getting the rooster alone with them, but he's the same way.I'm kind of lost. But leaning toward getting a full sized rooster, and pairing the two together. Maybe they'll have a "new birds" relationship. Then introduce the 5 to him slowly. I'm sure the little rooster will understand

That might make all new problems, but at least it's something to try, you may have to cull out or remove the little rooster, chicken politics will drive a person nuts sometimes, it's always best in hindsight to get everyone together in chick batches and add new members when they are chicks and the established flock is adults, good luck.
