We have had two flocks on our property for about two years. One flock lives on the upper part, and one lives on the lower part. They have been very happy. When free ranging, they sometimes meet in the middle to say hello, but always go back to their respective coops at night. My question is this: My children have ordered some easter eggers from McMurray hatchery, which will be here in late April. I would like to move all of my older hens together into one coop, and use the second for our new arrivals. Is it possible to teach the hens to move to a new home on the same property? I realize that their will be some integrating issues, but will they adjust to the new living arrangements, and go in at night to their new home? Or will they wander back up to their old home, and possibly have some run ins with the newbies? I know that I should leave them in the coop for many nights before ever thinking about letting them out, but is it conceivable to try this? Our alternative, I suppose is to build a third coop. Or try to integrate the babies once they are old enough. Thank you for any help!!
