I currently have four laying hens and a cockerel with a house that is more than comfortably sized for them. I would like to add a couple more hens to my flock and not wanting to tighten the space they have I am planning on buying a second house for my new hens. Currently, the outside run is very large and protected by electric fencing and they free range all day. My plan was to put the new house in the run with a temporary run for the new girls to allow them time to adapt before the others get at them. My question is as to whether the new hens will continue to use their own house once they are altogether? I am worried that our cockerel "Brian" will want to encourage the new hens into his house with the others and I will end up with them all squashed in one! Many thanks for any advice.
