My small flock of 3 golden lace wyandottes was reduced when neighbor's dog killed one. The remaining two did well over the past year laying 6 out of 7 days easily producing a dozen med lg brown eggs. I decided to expand the flock and picked up 3 barnvelder pullets 8 wks. I've got the hens separate from the pullets but they can see/hear each other. Two weeks later one of the hens is now broody and the other laying sporadically. I feed the hens Feather Fixer and supplement with cracked corn and oats as scratch and a handful of oyster or crushed egg shells. So the hens are healthy. The pullets are on multi flock chick starter and they are doing fine as well. I'm expanding their run and plan to combine the flock within the next month. I check the broody hen several times a day and shag her out of the laying box - now when I call her name and tap the coop roof she knows what's coming and hops out. I also realize the addition of the pullets, even though separate, is a disruption, however, how do I get everyone back on track?
