    Okay the point of letting my other hens go into with the older ones has arrived. Its been awhile since Ive witnessed the whole chicken=flock behavior..

    I let my older one and my younger ones 5 mnths and 3 mnth olds and the roo what looked like attacked one of the hens, course with advice I was told its normal and he was trying to mount her. Okay but for some reason Im now worried to let the hens go into with the older ones. I know I shouldn't be worried [​IMG]

    Gonna have to some time. Eventually the hens will get used to this and start to avoid the roosters.
