    My 4 ladies finally accepted the deleware pullet. It only took one month (two weeks of which she spent in a dog kennel in the run). Funny, they let her roost with them right away, just not eat or drink at the same time. Maybe once she lays eggs she'll be invited to the hen parties they have from time to time. Hey, how do you think they'll react to a turkey hen?

    Congrats on getting the new hen accepted. Watch for any signs of illness in case she's a carrier for a new disease.

    Hard to say if they'll accept a turkey hen. I've heard that turkeys are as dumb as dumb gets!
