I have two coops. One has a tall Plymouth Rock Rooster and 4 little Rhode Islanders. The second has a Bantum Roo part Easter Egger and 6 hens: 1 big Rhode Islander, 1 Buff Orphington, 1 Aracana, 1 Plymouth Rock and 2 Black Sex Links. Everyone gets along nicely. During the day they all go out together in groups of 10 and 2 most of the time! The 2 roosters and 8 hens spend their days together. I got three pullets: Two are another sort of Sex Link and one is a Buff Orphington. They are 12 weeks and 14 weeks old. They do great together. I have been keeping the little ones separate from the bigger ones for fear of fights or harm. However, it is not so safe in the tiny cage as it is in the coop and it is not so comfortable for the little ones. How should I go about introducing them. The little ones have not been free ranging either because of concern of harm being outside and not being as easy to get back in. The big hens and the roosters see them out inside a ring of chicken wire with a piece of wood on top and they hang out with them. Today someone brought me her one darling hen. She is a 2 year old Buff Orphington. She is very healthy and beautiful! I did not put her in with the little one or the two coops. I just do not want anyone to hurt her. She is all that person had left after a dog came through and killed her other two. I promised to love her, and I will have the former owner come visit her darling any time! The two coops we have are large enough to just accomodate these 4 new hens. We plan to build a single bigger coop probably at the start of June because, to tell the truth, I have fallen in love with my chickens, and I want more! . We had planned on only 3 hens, but now we have 14 hens and the 2 roos. I have been offered 3 more - 3 year old Leghorns. We will get them as soon as we have a space for them. Now, it is time for every hen to be in a coops we have so they are safe. We tried putting the bigger pullet in with the second coop, and she was attacked and scared and hid. So, I took her out. How does on get them together? I want everyone to be happy and safe together.
