New here from western MA. I grew up with chickens and starting last year I now have chickens of my own. Our flock has one Plymouth Rock rooster, 3 PR hens, 5 golden comets and 6 barred rocks that are 6 weeks old. We just introduced the new ones to the coop in a dog crate. Hopefully the transition goes well. Look forward the learning and sharing with everyone.

Hello there and welcome to BYC!

Yes, I always use the dog crate method. Keeping the newbies in the crate for a few weeks. Everybody sees, nobody touches. Usually after this time, the intro's aren't too awful aggressive.

Good luck mixing in your new birds and welcome to our flock!
