    I have a one year old Ringneck hen and am going to get a one and a half year old rooster and hen for her as a companion. After quarantine, is there anything to watch out for introducing the new birds into the flight pen?
    Thanks,
    Bosque

    My older birds,including the silvers, melanistic, snow, & white meats had no problems with introducing male or female as long as they were old enough. They wouldn't let me introduce anything under about 3 months old.
