Hi Everyone, I have had a tiny flock of 3 pullets that are 8 months old now. I have had them since they were about 14 weeks old. They were all new at the same time. I just recently added another pullet to the flock. I did everything right, having them separated for a while, but able to see each other, and now she has joined them in their free ranging. I have had her for 10 days, and they finally have let her into the coop at night for the last 3 nights. (I was putting her in manually after everyone had already gone to roost). During the day, they still chase her and peck at her, and the 3 girls go off and do their own thing while the new girl is ranging alone. She tries to join them but they chase her away. My question is, in your experience, will they fully accept her into the flock eventually, or could this unacceptance go on forever? I could be anthropomorphizing, but she seems very sad. I'm new to the whole chicken experience. Thoughts?
