Hello! So, I apologize for the repeat thread, as I realize many people have already posted on this topic already. But I've read many of the posts and am not quite sure I have all the info I need. Here's my issue. I have three silver-laced Wyandotte hens that are about a year and four months old, I've had them since they were a few weeks old. My roommate acquired three new pullets about two months ago from a friend who could not keep them. We were unsure of their sex or breeds but as they're maturing it's obvious they are all hens -- fortunately (we can't have roosters). As they are maturing (they are nearing 5 months old) it's obvious that one is a Rhode Island Red, one is a white Leghorn and one is a beautiful little bantam of some sort that is black with gold and green reflective feathers. The problem we're having is that despite hearing so much about Wyandottes being really docile and accepting of new birds, my girls HATE my roommate's new girls. The RIR and leghorn are pretty big at this point, big enough to defend themselves if necessary -- the one I'm worried about the most is the little bantam girl. So far the two flocks have been separated (the new girls are in a small transitional coop), but I really need them to be integrated into the big coop before winter. I'm also worried that after a two months of having them in separate coops that are quite close in proximity, the wyandottes are still not accepting the new girls at all. I just moved the little coop within a few feet (it was more like 15 feet away before) of the wyandotte's bigger coop, and the wyandottes have been complaining about it every morning since. Should I keep pushing the little girls' coop closer and just wait for the wyandottes to get over it? Will they ever get over it? They make such a racket in the morning, not like their normal egg laying and waking up racket, but a more territorial almost rooster-like squawking. Also, they all free range together in the back yard frequently. Thing is, they stay FAR apart, and the younger ones make sure to keep a large distance since the wyandottes are so aggressive. So I don't feel like they're getting any more used to each other over time. The few times I've introduced them in close proximity one or more of the wyandottes always goes after the younger ones, especially the bantam, and feathers start coming out (and that little bantam makes the most terrible noises when she's scared). I feel like I could get the RIR and leghorn integrated alone, since the bantam is always the focus of the aggression -- but then what to do with the poor little bantam? Is there any hope for her integrating with the flock? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for reading!
