    I have four 1 1/2 year old faverolles and 6 9 week old buff orpingtons. I have been slowly introducing them with free ranging together and housing them close to eachother. Well I took a plunge and put them all together at dusk in the coop and the last two days have been touch and go but only occational pecks and chest bumps. How many days after integrating before I can know for sure everything is ok?
