I have 12 hens and 1 roo. I just introduced 6 "new" laying hens to my 6 old girls a week ago. The integration has been okay so far as night time but when they free range during the day they still segregate into two groups with my bantam SLW roo running his little legs off trying to keep up. (He was thought to be a full size hen when purchased). I'm not really worried about the integration because they stay in two group of 6 while ranging. Yesterday, to my surprise, I had 4 of my "old" lay their eggs in a nest of leaves behind some shrubs by my house instead of their normal nest boxes in their coop. Is this "normal"? I know, I know, nothing is really normal!
