    We have 3 barred rock hens and 3 wynadotte hens that are 25-26 weeks old and our neighbor was getting rid of some of his feather-legged bantam roosters. The rooster is 20ish weeks old. We are wondering how we should go about introducing him to the girls? We had him in there for a day and they are pecking the crap outta him =( Suggestions?
