I had 9 chicks I bought in april... all turned out to be roos. :-(
So sunday I found someone with some young hens for sale. We got two. Then traded all of our roos but one for more babies. :-)
We did free range our roos all day, and then lock them up at night.
Since getting the two new girls, I have not let my roo out, and have had the girls locked up with him.
I want to let the three of them out, my roo (Fred) knows his home and where he sleeps ;-)
How long will it take the new girls to know, or will they follow Fred ???
Should I keep them locked up longer to know this is home now???
Thanks for any advice!
