introducing a new chicken to the flock? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I've followed everyone's advise and now have the new and old chickens getting along in the shared run. My last step is to get them in the same coop. I have 2 coops sharing the same run and the chickens at night go into their respective coops. My question is should I just remove the younger chickens coop or should I at night place the young chickens chickens in the older chickens coop. If I do the latter, when and how do I place the younger chickens in the coop? Do I the close the coop door to force them to be together overnight? Do I do it torwards the morning so the time they are locked in together are only for a couple hours?
Thanks for any advise.

Too late to answer. I'm sure you figured this out. Hope all is well and the eggs are coming in like gang-busters.
