Ok guys... question. Here's the deal. My friends had around 30 chickens. I went over and picked out four hens and a rooster and brought them over to my coop (no other chickens had previously been in the coop). We went over a week later exactly and grabbed two more chickens figuring since they already knew eachother everything would be fine. The five original chickens pecked at the two "new" ones and made them stay in a corner. We left them for the night and that morning the two 'new' chickens were chilling out on the top roost and all the other guys were on the bottom roost. I havent seen any more attacking or pecking. However, the two 'new' chickens have been in there for about 5 days now and I haven't seen them anywhere other than on that top roost. I work 10 hours a day five days a week with a 40 min commute... so I've only been able to check on the chickens around 6am and then after 6pm. When I feed the chickens (everyone is shut into the coop right now since it got -8 where I live for a few days in a row) only the first five chickens I had are getting down and eating. The other two just hop around on the roost and act like they want to come down but won't... I'll stand and watch for 30 min or so and have yet to see them eat. The first few days I was putting food up top with the two new chickens so they'd eat but then I stopped hoping it would make them go down and eat... Do I need to be worried? Or will they adjust in their own time? I haven't seen any of the other chickens act aggressively towards them since that first night and no one is injured or missing any feathers... Someone mentioned to me that I should put the two chickens in their cage on the floor of the coop so everyone can be around eachother during feeding time but the other chickens couldn't chase them off... that way everyone can get more used to eachother that way (even though all of these chickens were JUST fine together when they were in the other coop)... Is that something I should do? Or do you think they'll figure out the pecking order on their own?
