    Integrating New Chickens

    We are wanting to integrate new chickens into a flock of ten free range (on 3 acres) chickens (Araucana and Sex Link chickens). Are there breeds that will integrate into an existing flock better than others? How many might be a good number to integrate? Thanks.

    Integrating bantams

    I've been looking at bantams to be my spring chicks this year but my concern is that integrating them into an established flock of 10 standard sized chickens will not be pretty. There is plenty of room in my coop and I free range (still debating letting bantams free-range). I have 2 that are...
