Which needs do I need to meet?
If you can do your best to make sure they have enough room and aren’t crowded - the more space they have the better, but there’s many creative ways to accomplish this. You don’t need to have a chicken mansion (although I wish I had one). As @LateBirdFarms said, even letting them out earlier perhaps. Or removing a nesting box - I think you have 2?
Also, try to get some chicken food as soon as you can. Making your own food is complicated, but perhaps you can research that option after your birds are integrated if you’d like.
If you do these things it may make it easier to integrate the new chickens successfully.

Yep I’m getting chicken feed this week and I’ll remove a nesting box.

Your coop looks like it can be enough space for 3 birds, with a few adjustments. Theres a few problems with it, but the main issue with it is that its going to make integration hard, especially since you free range and there is no real run. I'm hoping someone with experience in integrating a lone bird to a two bird free range flock might be able to steer you in the right direction.
Yeah they seem to get alone pretty well but they bite her occasionally if she approaches and goes near them. They bite her then leave her

Thank

thanks when they sleep should I open the door on the right so they can roost which can prevent bulling since more space or?
I really don’t know, I built my coop but I barely made it out alive. Should’ve made it bigger. There were times I thought I was going to lose a limb with the power tools ...


I would suggest dividing the inside coop with wire, and using the door to the left to allow your bullied bird to access the outside area, if they free range.
maybe this

Here , should I let them out here at night too?
Probably no. And if they're not really biting or fighting, and can tolerate sitting next to each other, they probably don't even NEED to be separated. If you feel they need to be separated, I would staple some chicken wire inside the main coop area, and allow the bullied bird access to outside through the door pictured on the left.

Last time I saw all three of them in the same nest but occasionally bite. Do you think the smaller hen loosing feathers and She pecking it since she need chicken feed
