post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We recently(5 days ago) brought home 4 gals and now we want to get more...will we have problems with the introduction of the new ones to the flock?

 

Thanks

Are you getting them from where you got the ones you have? Or is it a different source?
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

From the same place, there are several runs that house the chickens at this place of business so chances are they have run across one another.

If they have only recently been separated you shouldn't have too much trouble, try to choose ones that hang together so they have friends. If they are from different pens there may be some bickering. The sooner you add them the better, before the first batch gets too comfortable and consider your coop theirs.
