It is going to be my first year adding to my flock and I had a few questions. I currently have 11 birds. nine hens and two roos. I am going to be hatching out roughly 40 birds and purchasing about four turkeys. The current flock has a poultry net but they just hop it to free range during the day. So, never having added new birds to the flock my question is this. How should I go about integrating the new birds? I will brood them far away from the flock until they are at least ten weeks old. At that point would it be best to just slip the new birds in the coop after everyone is asleep? My thinking is that even if they do pick at the newcomers they are outnumbered 4-1 so every bird would be picked on a little bit instead of one bird being severely beaten. I had thought of putting the new birds in a temporary fence next to the existing birds. But what is the point if the other birds just hop it? Any advice?
