Hello! I am trying to figure out the best way to integrate my new rooster. I have 3 hens that have lived together for about 6 years now. It's been 2 years since our rooster passed away and we finally got a new 11 month old bantam Sebrite yesterday. My hens are a Buff Orphington, a Rhode Island Red, and some type of speckled that I'm not sure the breed. We placed our rooster in a smaller kennel inside their coop/pen area for about 18 hours today. When I got home from work I thought I'd let them meet closer so opened his kennel. They all clucked around then on an instant my females went after him. He was not aggressive back at all. He headed for the hills. I pushed the girls off and put him back in his own home. I really want them to accept him. Just more time? Any tricks? Or am I out of luck?!
