I have recently expanded my flock of 4hens and 1roo, to include 5 more chicks. I had them in the same coop, separated by a metal wire wall for 6 wks. I gradually socialised them, letting them roost together at night while calm. The chicks have grown, are feathered out and I thought ready for merging. I have 1 older hen (recently rescued from my sisters coon ravaged coop) who chases, pecks and heckles the chicks. She won't even let them near the feeder or water, or onto the roost at night, unless I'm in the coop too. When I let them out during the day to trim my lawn, they stay in separate flocks. It has been 2 weeks of togetherness in the coop and still no getting along! Since I don't want to live in the coop any suggestions??
