I recently lost one of my two hens, so I wanted to give my lonely hen, Scarlet, a new companion. Unfortunately I had a hard time finding anybody in the area who would sell me a single adult hen, so I settled on getting an older pullet to introduce to Scarlet. This morning I bought a RIR pullet that I was told be 19-21 weeks old, but I'm beginning to question her age as she still has a little bit of peep in her voice and is about half the size of my hen. Unfortunately, it's been nearly three years since I last raised pullets so I've completely forgotten what they should look like at this age and I can't get a straight answer from Google. I named the new girl Saffron and she's currently being quarantined in a dog crate next to the hutch Scarlet sleeps in. I've done a lot of research about introducing an older pullet to a hen, but is she actually TOO young?
