    Ive read alot about adding new hens to flocks but does the same apply if you have x1 lone pullet and introducing another lone pullet of 13wks-14wks age??

    You can introduce them to each other. Chickens are social birds so once they sort out who's dominant over who, they'll enjoy each other's company.

    I was hoping that. But wasnt sure if the same rules applies to older Hens to pullets. Thanks for your input.
