Three of my hens, have died in the past two weeks from predation, I have learned my lesson. I am very sad, but I have been thinking about introducing new hens to my group. I have 6 black sexlinks, 2 Aruacanas, 2 Barred rocks, and 1 Buff orpington. I can get chickens from local sources around here. I was wondering if I should bother getting new hens, I have heard that it is hard to introduce them, to an established group. I have 11 hens now. I was thinking that the buff might be picked on because she has no other fellow breed-mates do you think she will? Do you guys have any special ways of introducing new hens to your flocks? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
