I have a varied flock (small) five adult hens. Of my three oldest ladies, of unknown breedb reed,ever gets along fine. Last year I introduced The Evil Twins, Maleficent and Cruella. A pair of Silver Laced Wyandottes that will run fifty yards across the yard to bully one of the older ladies, Miss Penny a smaller Easter Egger. So since Miss Penny is relegated to being alone 95% of the time including sleeping by herself in a nesting box I was thinking of trying a new approach to integrating my five new chicks. I have a rabbit hutch with a wire mesh divider. I thought I would sit it on the ground and build a divided run attached to it. Place Miss Penny in one side and the five chicks in the other. Hopefully one or all of the babies will bond with Miss Penny and she won't be free ranging all alone and will be able to have friendly company on the roost. Thoughts? Good or bad or waste of time and energy?
