Hello, I have a question about integrating new chickens with an existing flock. I am going to take a friend's 10 week old chicks. (4 pullets, 2 roos) We currently have 2 flocks. We have 1 year olds (11 hens, 1 roo) free range up front by the house. Our other flock is in the barn. There are 24 of them and are 10 weeks old. Not sure exactly how many roos-I think around 5. We are thinking of integrating them with the barn flock. They live in a 400sq ft area. So, we were thinking of putting the newbies in a dog cage inside the living are till they get used to each other...but I really am clueless...will that even work? Are there other threads I can read about this? Thanks!
