    Hello! I have 2 hens that I have had since they were chicks.. They are about 2 years old... They are Super bossy.. My 100lb pitbull can't stand up to them half the time..But I really want to get 2 more chickens since our coop is so large. What is the best way to go about that?

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. Since you have such a large coop- maybe you can divide it(with wire) to keep chicks and hens separate, as well as their outdoor run. After your hens are not trying to kill them through the fencing - and the chicks are bigger - you may be able to combine them.
