    Replace roo with a hen?If I get a roo and take it back (the grange said I an do that) and get a new pullet & introduce it to my 2 other pullets (because I cant just have 2 chickens) what will happen? will they get along or fight?

    How old are your birds? How old is the new pullet going to be?

    It depends on the age of the pullet, you may have to quarentine her before adding her with the rest of your flock. As far as if they will get along, I am pretty sure it will depend on the age of all of them.
