In the Brooder
- Sep 10, 2008
We need to give 2 of our hens away. They are great hens, but we are getting way too many eggs! A friend of mine has a great hen house and two hens that are old and no longer laying. She offered to take my two hens and we are wondering how to merge the hens for the best results. I suggested keeping the two new ones separate but visible... like separating the two groups with chicken wire for a few days so they can see each other, but not attack each other. I also suggested she not free range the two new ones for a few days until they are comfortable in the new coop. Does anyone have anything else to suggest?? Thanks!
