I have a pair of polish chickens (7 week olds) and i am getting three bantam rosecombs that are two months. Then i am getting two bantam cochins in three weeks ( 8 week old) ... How do I introduce them?? I only have the one rooster (polish). I am really new to chickens and I just want to make sure that none of them get hurt.
Can someone give me ALOT of advice.

You should quarantine for 30 days, if you can.

Otherwise, you can move one batch over at night. Put the zombied birds on the roost with the other zombied birds. Chickens cant count, so you may avoid some fights that may happen if they were introduced during the day.

Since they are all so young, and similar in age, I don't expect a ton of fighting.
