We have four 18-week old white leghorn mixes (3 pullets and 1 cockerel), as well as three 14-week old Easter Eggers (2 cockerels and 1 pullet). They all stay in the same coop, but when they free-range the leghorns stay together, and the EEs keep to themselves in a separate flock. They all come back to the coop together in the evening and there haven't been any fights. Lately one of the EE cockerels has started to be aggressive with the leghorn hens, so the time has come to separate them. I would like to keep one rooster in the flock (the leghorn), so I will be giving the two EE roosters away. My question is, will the lone EE pullet be accepted into the other flock, or should I try to find two other pullets her age and pull them into the flock as well? Maybe I'm just over-thinking it, but it seems like she will be lonely when her brothers are gone haha.
