I know majority say it's impossible, but I'm clinging to the few success stories out there! I rescued a mature bantam Cochin from my hospital's parking lot about 6 weeks ago. No one on my local Backyard chicken sites claimed her & left to her own she wouldnt have lived with all the stray/wild cats in the area. I've completed the 4.5 weeks quarantine, currently have her in my little coop & run right along side my big coop & run. My existing flock (1 RIR, 1 barred rock, 2 Americaunas, 2 leghorns) have been able to see her but no access for a week now. I have done two free range supervised "play dates". The bantam is surprisingly brave & desperately wants to "play" with the others. I'm using water hose to break up any fights that lasts longer than I can stand. The bantam has no fear going straight into the main coop & eating their food, climbing on their logs I have in there, but she does end up getting chased around & I intervene. So far only 2-3 feathers lost, no blood, & she's actually chased off my RIR. It's stressful & Im afraid 1) if I ever leave her alone with the others she will be killed & 2) she's going to spend her life getting chased. I'm very attached to this little bantam & open to any advice from y'all!! Willing to take as long as necessary to integrate her safely!! ADVICE??
