    I have a bantam cochin pullet that I am trying to introduce into my Frizzle group. I put her in at night and the next moring the rooster was bawking and bawking. Today I went to check on it and the rooster and two hens had pecked the feathers off the top of its head and it was bleeding. Can anyone help tell me a better way to introduce a new pullet to existing flock? Right now I have the bird seperated so it can heal. Thanks.

    Best luck.

    Whatever you do, don't introduce her if she still makes noises like a baby chick! They will kill her eventually. I don't know why they do it but they will! Be sure she sounds mature as much as looks it. [​IMG]
