There was a larger flock, but the other 5 were killed. I got 2 more as rescues and one recently died, which is where the bottom hen, Curly, came from. I waited 2 days for introduction with them - it was an accident. My son opened the gate and they all met. No fighting at all, it was a very easy going intro. And the pecking order was done immediately; Layla having lived here longer took over.
I'm hopeful chicks will be similar; but probably won't happen. So need some suggestions on how to do this.
As of now we have 10 viable eggs. Once they hatch we will keep at absolute most one roo and all the hens, so however many that ends up being.
