    I live in FL, have one welsummer hen who's about a year and a half old. Wanted to get her some friends so got 1 Swedish flower hen and 1 rooster, 5 mos. old and 3 Norvegen brown hybrid chicks now 5 weeks old. Planning to transition chicks to co-op shortly. Any suggestions?

    Buff Orpington has given a link to my favorite "Look but don't touch method," of integration - think it's the kindest, safest way.

    Thanks for all the help you guys. I just got a rooster, never had one before as I only wanted layers. He doesn't crow at all, is that normal?
