    I am getting 2 cochin hens approx 8 mo old. What is the best way to introduce them to my flock. I have silkies now. 2 hens..4 new babies in one coop and run and 2. 4 mo old roosters that have their own coop and run. The roosters are 4 mo old and raised with the hens..they are her babies. How long do i seperate new cochins as not to stress them too much. Any and all tips will be greatly appreciated
