    I have 2 black leghorns and 2 barred leghorns that are 13 weeks old. I had 2 light brahmas given to me which are about 9 weeks old. I introduced the light brahmas to the other hens and they don't seem to be getting along at all. Does anyone know if they will adjust and get along with each other after time or if it is not going to change?? I don't want to get rid of the light brahmas. Do I need to just give it time and let them get used to eachother? I would appreciate any advice given.

    I have mixed chickens a couple of times now and they all fight for a while (after a period where they can see each other without hurting each other) and then they calm down and pretty much keep to themselves for awhile. You will notice you have 2 groups that hang out separately, the older group and the newer group. You should be fine though.
