So, it has finally happened. Now my 6- 22 week old BA's are laying, I want more chickens!!!
I am going to a local nursery to check them out, and hopefully pick up 4 more new babies of the same breed.
As they will need to be brooded for a couple of months before being integrated into my current flock, I assume this will meet any quarantine requirements.
However, I am concerned about bringing them in with my Ladies, when their time to go out into the coop comes.
I have heard slipping them in at night is a good way to go, but I am seeking other suggestions on how to minimize agression of the Big girls towards the little ones (and one roo) I am bringing home.
Any specific suggestions regarding integrating a little roo in with the women he will, one day, be expected to breed with?
Never done this before, so I could use all the help I can get.
Have started asking now, because I am hoping to learn all I can between now and the new babies being added to the flock.
Thanks, in advance, as always.

Brightest Blessings

PS- sorry if this belonged under Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying, rather than Raising Baby Chicks.
