    Flock Integration?

    Hello! Currently, we have about four generations (technically 6) of birds in our coop; the forth being the ones we are trying to introduce. Over time, we have bought new birds, and been given new birds; but I don't feel that any have properly "integrated". I could be wrong, but I'm not sure...

    I will preface by saying that I am a first time chicken owner (but long time animal rescuer) from the city and desperately need help!!

    Having trouble introducing new bantam chicks to the rest of the flock

    We got some new Bantam grow-out chicks (for a multitude of reasons I suppose), but having trouble with the flock accepting them. There's only three of them, 2 hens and one rooster. Thinking it was a mistake to get the roo, as it's making this process harder, but they wouldn't sell me the one hen...
