    As far as introducing the younger birds, do it slowly. Maybe set up and area where the older birds can see them but not attack them and them a little at a time let them get to know each other.

    As far as the Orpingtons, I dont know the answer for sure but it sounds like you may have gotten a Rhode Island Red or other breed like that.

    I'm putting the bigger girls in the grow out pen 1 at a time for a night and a day. They apear to be getting to know eachother and the larger bird, being outnumbered and on unfamiliar ground, is taken down a notch in aggression.
