Okay so I have a buff orpington and she was brooding so we got her 3 chicks (a white leghorn, a sliver laced Wyandotte and a black sexlink.) she was fine with the chicks for 2 months and the sexlink turned out be a rooster so we gave him away. we got a new hen we think she is a ameriauna barred rock mix or a mutt so we tried to introduce her to the others and we had a good and bad turn out. the WL and the SLW were fine but my BO was not happy and chased the new one round the yard and pecked her head . the new one wouldn't move and would just let her do it so I separated them and then reintroduced her at night a few days later. and the same result. We are on our last resort. I don't want to have to get rid of the new one but if needed I will rid my new baby. PLEASE HELP

nesting boxes don't count neither does the run...you are needed 4 sq per bird for the INSIDE part only..the actually coop. The run is the screened in outdoor area which should be 10 sq feet per bird.


Loo for some ideas here:

You can always look on Craigslist under the free section for good materials to use to add on to it.
