I have started integrating Pewee. I've kept the sessions short, but he is doing great! He is mostly ignored, though one of the more bossy hens gave him a couple pecks. I actually think some of the younger hens like him because they miss their old roos.
I have older hens that peck at my roo too. I noticed he was roosting on a lower roost then the older hens. He is 7 months old and probably didn’t want the fuss and pecking!
He was sleeping in the shed and kept roosting where I put him on the first night. Maybe he is too sweet- lol
I really want to build a bigger coop! Maybe next summer

Chicken pecking order is fascinating to me!

Go for the coop!
