Sooo..... My new chickens were allowed to be integrated with my other four girls yesterday. Right away they were asserting themselves and chasing my original girls away. A few times thy have gotten fierce enough that they pulled feathers out. The two girls seems to be spending a lot of time by themselves. I know chickens tend to go in pairs, but will they eventually chill out? Again they are free ranging so they have opportunities to get away from each other. Why can't we all just get along?
hahaha..why?..hahaha, sorry, I lost my crazy 8-ball a longgg time ago!....
Same thing happened here when I introduced the newest 3 , (2-BLR & 1 BlackLR) , to the existing 3...the newbies were the ones to go offensive first, but things quieted down after a couple days..they didn't go as crazy on each other as we have read some do..thank goodness.
They should be just fine after a bit...they just need time to work out the new pecking order. Things shouldn't be too bad, if it does seem to be getting out of order, then intervention maybe in order..but it doesn't sound like you are having that issue right now.Good luck with your integrated flock!!
