    So we added 4 more chickens to our flock bringing total to 13, they are all in the run together now, huddled in their seperate groups. Anything else we can do to make the transition better? Will the new ones find their way inside tonight or will they need coaxing? The new ones are about a month younger then ours, our chickens JUSt starting laying a few days ago.

    i will be doing some searching but looking for any advice.

    Thanks

    Give them time. [​IMG]

    Make sure you put them in if they don't go in by themselves so they are protected.
