    We introduced a new chicken into the flock of 3 hens (no roosters), we put them together in the daylight & from the start they did not get along, its been about a month & they seemed to have tolerated each other, one of the hens has started laying (this is the first for all of them), this morning I went out to find the hen we had added was dead, She was otherwise very healthy, .
    My question is, did the others kill her? What can we do differently when we want to introduce another hen into the flock?
    Thanks for any advice,
    Butters.
