    Integrating Chickens! Please Help!

    In my experience hens just need a little bit of time and space and they should be fine in a week. If you have a chance you can put them in the same space and separate them with a wire mesh so they can get to know each other. Leave them like this for two days and put them all together...

    Mama and babies

    I currently have 39 beaks and they share around 500 square feet of a barn and around 0.5 acre of free range outside space. Hens went broody and hatched chicks in a barn and they did not have any problems so far (I assume because of the ammount of space available). How big is your coop? So far I...
