I have 8 RIR laying hens. I would like to get about 6 more chickens, but I'm not sure about adding them to the flock. How would I go about introducing them? They will be sharing the same coop as the RIR's. I don't know whether to get them this year, or wait until next year and get 14 new chickens after butchering these 8, and start a new flock. Any suggestions?
