Hi All, So I have a little problem. I am new to raising chickens, My husband and I started a small flock last summer. We purchased four 20 week old pullets. They all came from the same farm and got along great! Unforunatly we lost one over the winter to a weasel and another this spring to a dog. That left us with two. We wanted to increase the flock so we purchased four new 20 week old pullets a week ago. It is not going well.... my two original ladies do NOT like the newbies. they won't let them on the roost at night so the four new girls sleep on the floor of the coop. During the day if my two originals want to be out in the run they chase the newbies in the coop and won't not letting them into the run. If the original two want to be in the coop then they chase the four newbies into the run not allowig them into the coop. The four newbies aren't fighting back either. If the two originals attack them they just lay down and then try to get away. AHHHH I don't see that it is getting any better. I know these things take time... my question is just how much time is needed before we start thinking about what needs to be done with the two originals.... I really just want them to all get along... Any advise is welcome.
