I just keep coming up with new questions it seems. A neighbor of my daughter's was able to take the rooster I was not wanting to keep and he has raised chickens most of his life, has shown them at fairs and buys and sells them. When we were talking I said I had really wanted to get some blue egg layers and before he left, he said he could probably get me a few hens for my rooster. He got these hens almost the day after he took the rooster. We were gone for almost 5 days but before we got home, he added the two new girls right into my flock before we got home! Of course, my girls aren't overly happy about this and the two new ones which seem a bit younger (mine are about 17 weeks) are basically afraid of the older girls. I have automatic coop door opening in morning and closing at night. The two new ones didn't make an effort to go into the coop tonight and are roosting in the run. Any suggestions or pointers you can make with the situation? Everything I had read until now made it sound like you didn't introduce them to the older flock this way but this guy says they'll work it out. Not liking them roosting in run even though I think it's fairly secure but any advice you can offer will be much appreciated!!
