    We have 3 12-week old girls, and had 1 EE rooster who had to leave so he could go sing his heart out... Somewhere else.
    We want to get another girl, but don't want to hatch or start from chicks because we don't want to get another roo, so should we get ones that are the same age, or can we get older birds or...?
    Also, would it be less stressful for them if we introduced 2 together so they won't get so beat up?
    Thanks for the help!

    I would definitely add two or more at the same time.
