We integrated our three 18 week old SLW's with our other four birds about a week ago. It was ok for the first few days but now the SLW's will not leave the coop to go into the run, not even for food or water. We ended up moving the food and water into the coop from the covered run so they wouldn't starve or die of dehydration. I just don't get it. They aren't being picked on too bad by the older girls (who come and go in the coop where the SLW's are holed up.) My DH is all set to build the SLW's their own condo next to our big coop. I don't really want to spend the $$ or time if it can be avoided. *deep sigh* These girls have really got me scratching my head. I'm thinking of putting my top two hens in the chicken tractor for a few days and see if that helps any. Any other ideas?????
