Hello everyone, I have placed five new pullets in my coop several weeks ago. I started by placing a separator between the new chickens and the current chickens. I left it there for about a week and slowly introduced the other chickens to the flock when the free range feed. It has been five weeks and the older flock will not allow the other newer chicken to join and roost with them. The are attacking the chickens and will not allow them by the food and water. I have again separated them and am at a lose to why they will not allow them to join the flock. Any I ideas how to finally get the to allow them to join? I have not had this problem before. I have even placed the new chicken inside the coop to roost at night (x5nights) so when the other chickens awoke they would be there with them. that did not turn out good. The cornered the new chickens. thanks for you help.
