I'm intending to get another 2 chooks to go with my 4 isa browns. I've read the info about how to introduce new chickens to existing chickens, but I'd like some advice as to how best to go about it when I'm also getting a new chook house. The girls' existing house (and small attached run) is inside a fenced run. I'm going to put the new house somewhere else so I'll have 2 houses to work with. The info suggests that putting everyone together in 'neutral territory' can help with territorial disputes, but it's also suggested to separate everyone and let them interact through a fence before letting them loose together, so I'm a bit confused as to how to approach it. Should I leave my girls where they are, put the new girls when they come in the new house, or move my girls and put the new girls in the old house and run? My girls are let out every day, they don't stay just in their run. The new house's attached run is smaller than the run where the existing house is. I could put the new girls in there, let my girls carry on with their existing "routine" and they could see the new girls in the new house. Let the new girls out for a bit while the girls stay in their run???? I wouldn't want an new chooks to get territorial over the new house, but if there's only 2 of them and 4 of the "old" girls, would it matter if they did think the house was just for them?? Also, what sort of timeframe would stop territorial feelings about the new house, if that's an issue? What would you do/suggest as to how to go about not only introducing "new people" but making the move of everyone into the new house (eventually)? I'd love for somebody experienced to just tell me "do it this way" because I'm driving myself nuts Thanks.
