    When you add new chickens what is the best way to integrate them and at what age? Also, are there times when they just won't ever get along? (My goal is to have no roosters, so that might make it easier, right?)

    I usually wait till they're sizes are close to the chicken sizes in the flock. Then I add alot of obstacles for them to hide behind, and an extra feed and waterer near where they tend to hang out.
