    Greetings from Kansas, Donna, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! Here's a great article from the Learning Center that tells how to integrate chickens https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/adding-to-your-flock
    There may also be a time period when you want to keep them apart if you are not familiar with the birds coming in - just to make sure they are healthy. There are quarantine articles on BYC as well. Best of luck to you!!
