    After 2 1/2 weeks of the "old" girls next to the "new" girls, I finally opened things up and they are together.

    There were a couple of short chases, but NOTHING like I expected. :)

    It will be interesting to see what happens at roosting time tonight....

    I was so worried for nothing (?)

    Sounds like you had a nice smooth integration thus far. Post back after tonight to tell us how the roosting routine went.

    I just added a hen to my flock. Surprisingly they all did great!

    I'm glad to hear everything is going well! it can be a pain for all involved when the chicks are introduced too quickly, as I learned the hard way. :lol: Sounds like you did a good job, well done!
