    Currently I have 2 flocks, my indoor flock and my outdoor flock

    well it is time the indoor flock join the rest of the family outside.\\


    I have introduced hens with no problem in the past but always kept my roos seperate

    my indoor flock have established a pecking order and everyone is happy

    my out door flock aslo have their pecking order intact

    how will be the easiest way to join my flock?

    I have 16 hens and 2 roos is 8:1 a ok ratio?

    I think your ratio is OK but I would expect some conflict until they get things worked out. If they don't or one rooster causes a lot of damage you might have to part with a rooster.
