I have recently purchased a New Hampshire red pullet ( she is around 2 and 1/2 months) and have tried to introduce her to my flock. The flock constists of: 1 laying d'uccle 1 point of lay pekin bantam 1 3 month old Wyandotte 1 3 month old silkie AND 1 VERY aggressive Wyandotte bantam Rooster. All of my usually sweet girls and rooster(who used to be quite tame) have now turned into little devils. When I first brought her home I decided to sit down but hold her to see what the flock did. Immediately my girls began to try and peck her to death but my rooster wasn't really phased which I thought was odd. I put her in a separate section of the coop where they could look but not touch. After quite a few days I decided ( since they didn't try pecking her anymore) to see what would happen if she was out. I made sure I could easily get to her and then let her go. She was fine just pecking on the ground with the other girls even if they did give her a bit of a nip. Of course nothing lasts forever and out of nowhere my rooster grabs her my the neck and starts to viciously mount her. It was just lucky that I was there or I'm sure he would have killed her. Sorry this is so long but does anyone have any ideas on how I can try and introduce her?
