    She is reestablishing the pecking order. What works for me when introducing new (in my case, adolescents) birds, is to keep them in a cage in the coop for a few days to a week so that they get used to each other first. Then I put out the new ones as night, and the transition usually ends up going smoothly.

    G’Day from down under Meg707 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Bowie as in David Bowie? I can see the resemblance [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
