Just wanted to say I have 4 new black rock POL chickens to add to my little group. That means I now have 10 chickens and 1 duck. We brought the new girls home this afternoon and after clipping their wings we shut them in the shed. We opened the pop hole at dusk to allow the other girls to go in to roost. When I went down to shut my horse in the new girls were asleep out in the run so I had to pick each one up and put it throught the pop hole before closing it. What they will all think tomorrow morning when they are all in the shed until I get up I dread to think!! We always introduce new birds to old straight away and they have to sort out the pecking order quickly as we have no way off keeping birds separated. I have never had any real problems other than the established group get quite cross and strut about noisily for a while. So...............fingers crossed for harmony!!!
