Introducing A Welsummer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 4 little red Pyle hens. They're not know to be especially friendly but they're pretty small. Back when I had a Wyandotte, the Wyandotte was always top of the totem pole. So would it be an ok decision to introduce a welsummer hen to my coop?

I would imagine so. It should be fine. The girls will just have to get used to a new hen.

X2. I would add the welsummer and see what happens. If there is a lot of fighting and bullying going on, than I would seperate her, but put her where the other hens can see and interact with her (a large cage or dog crate works well for this) and wait a few days before letting her out again. Good luck with your flock!

Breeds I raise: Easter Eggers, Naked Necks, PROJECT white d'Uccles, Mille fleur d'Uccles, RI reds, Barred PR's, Assorted Cochins, GLW's, Sexlinks, Mutts, and one Lavender Orpington!

Turkeys: Bourbon Red ~ Standard Bronze

Ducks: Blue ripple and black Muscovys
