Integrating a Rescue Bantam to my existing flock-ADVICE?? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to update & thank you both again! Little girl has done tremendous! Today was the first time I left her alone confined to the coop/run without the option of free range escape. I monitored for a bit & then came inside & checked back every 15 mins or so. By evening she was sharing plates of yogurt with the others. I decided to see what would happen at dusk & determine if I should let her stay to fight over a roost spot OR call it a great day but let's retreat back to your own little coop for the night.....I'm very very happy to say she is wedged between two other hens & everyone is sleeping. Quite the successful day!!!
Should I still be worried or can I relax a little knowing the worst is over???

Hey there BayfrontHens

 

Great news! :clap

 

Personally, yep, I think you can relax now.  While she will probably still get picked on from time to time, as the pecking order dictates, it definitely sounds like she has been accepted.
