    How do you know they're hermaphrodites? I've never heard of such a thing.

    As far as how to introduce any chicken to any other chicken, you let them get to know each other on opposite sides of a fence for a week or so, then put them together.

    Personally, I just put new roos in with the hens the first day and let them sort it out--there's usually a lot less fussing when introducing hens to a roo than when introducing hens to other hens.
