We could, or we could kick out the goat and take that section of the kennel for the pullets so the hens can see them and all Id have to do is build a roost for them to sleep in, which I could convert a dog kennel into one, cover it up and put some branches inside for them.

Shall see, I will work with the information that was given and utilize it as best as I can.

I'm in a similar situation as you jeeneh85. However I have only 1 layer and a dozen pullets that are 6 weeks.i tried introducing 1 pullets to my hen and she immediately came pecking. So what I did was cut a "doggy door" at the back of my hens shed & put chicken wire over it...then added a temporary run & coop for the pullets....that way my big hen will see and hear them for awhile. I figure about once a week I'll remove the screen from the "doggy door" and see how it goes....the once it's ok the pullets can mingle on in to the big permanent fenced area & shed.

Please don't misunderstand. All threads are welcome, even if to simply drop by and shoot the breeze or complain about the weather! :thumbsup
