I'm ready to move my 25 6-wk olds (Reds, BO, Silver Laced Wyandotte, and Aracaunas) out into the coop and yard with my remaining four adult chickens and wonder if there are any tricks to "introduce" them without much violence? Of course, I assume there will be the whole pecking order setup, but I have the thought that 25 new birds will sort of overwhelm my existing adults. I'm down to one ridiculously insane silkie roo and 3 hens--a BO, a Red Sex Link, and a white leghorn who went broody to my amazement and sat on the other gals' eggs, eventually hatching three BOs. (She got so excited to head back out to free range that she kind of forgot to sit on the rest of the eggs enough. Nonetheless, it's astounding she went broody like this in the first place, seeing as she's a leghorn... hmm! Today she attacked the 120 pound dog who made the mistake of walking down the driveway 10' away from her! She is SERIOUS about mothering!) Her chicks are about 1 week old now and thriving (and ridiculously cute, of course). Any tips from you folks with more experience than my 1+ year? Oh, I also have 7 ducks and 7 guineas--all share the coop at night, nestboxes, feeders, and free range all day. Thanks!
