    Ok I have a 10 week old redstar hen I am wanting to release her with the rest of my flock. I have had her out in a run so all my older flock can get use to her for about 2 weeks now. everything seems to be going great and she wants out so bad but its me who is nervous. I am afraid that when i let her out things could go bad. all my flock is free range.

    what should i do now?

    let her out. They probably will peck at her and such, but since it's free range she could run away from them at least fro a little while.

    Take a little time for her to find her place in the pecking order, she'll be fine:)
