My girls are pushing 9 weeks. I found a place that will ship me a Blue Jersey Giant cockerel around the same age. I have a few questions.

1) I'm only getting the one bird. How well do larger single birds do with the shipping process?
2) How/when should I incorporate the cockerel in with the girls?
3) When I am keeping him separate, who much room should he have? Can he be located where he can see the girls or is that not good?

I do not know about the other questions since I have never had any experience adding a cockeral or having one. I would think it seeing the hens would be fine, best to get them acquinted as much as you can.
Hope someone can give you more answers on that
