    Do you have a way to separate the new birds from the birds you already have? Put the new bird(s) in a dog carrier if you have one (or separate a part of the pen for the new birds) and let the new birds get use to the existing ones. This way they can't do too much damage to each other. After you feel that they won't fight each other, let the new ones out when you can be out there to watch them, and see how they all act together. I usually keep new birds in a dog carrier for a couple of days before letting them out with my other chickens.
