I have a question...yesterday or the night before I introduced 2 new chickens (silkies) to the flock the way Justin Rhodes said to do it, by putting them in at night, and the chickens think they’ve always been there. Worked great! No issues. Our daughter gave us these 2 new ones. Everything is going great, everyone’s getting along, well Miss Violet (an EE) did let them know yesterday that she’s head hen, but nothing bad. The 2 roosters are actually kind of protective of the new silky hens. Anyway my question is, how long do I keep these two locked in the coop and the run so they get used to it being home before I let them free range? I notice they hang out in the coop much more then in the run and stick together. I had to get them because I have a white crested black Polish that is being picked on because he’s the oddball and small. I’m hoping and praying that this works because they are also different being silkies, than my New Hampshire Reds, Buff Orphington‘s, and my Easter Eggars.
