    Hi I feel sooo bad for my pullets.

    Heres the story, I get two new hens from my Grandad for the 2 roosters I gave him. I have 5 other 3 month old pullets that are completely feathered out. The two new ones are ful grown and are already laying.....This is my problem, one of the new hens is being sooo mean to my other girls. But the other new one is so layed back and fit right in with the others. I have the mean one locked in a dog crate out in the run with the others she is of course really mad. Needless too say she is going back to my Grandads.[​IMG]

    Do you think the other one would be ok without her? Also do you think the other will be picked on in her new flock?? Thanks! [​IMG]

    Im so sad and I feel like I have done the worst thing possible to my girls! [​IMG]

    Don't worry. Introducing newbies is always hard as you never know how they will interact until you try. Maybe Grandad has another hen to swap for the "mean" one???? If not, as long as the new girl is getting along with your girls, they should be fine. Good luck!
