Hi from Monticello Georgia! I'm new to having chickens. Raised three RIR (two hens, one rooster) in brooder and now they are 10 weeks old. Just put in two more hens 7 weeks old that are buffs. Put them in coup tonight and no noise....but I'm worried about in the morning......

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help. 

 

Hopefully there won't be a bad fight in the morning. Sometimes new chickens will be treated as old if introduced at night when they can't see what's going on. But do expect there to be lots of fights to establish the new pecking order. If it doesn't work, try using the see but don't touch method. It works very well! http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/introducing-new-chickens-using-the-see-but-don-t-touch-method

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.
