    I'm planning on adding three new pullets to an established flock of three laying hens. I have a 24 sq ft hen house, plenty of outdoor space. Suggestions for introducing the new birds?

    put the hens in a portable pen for 2 or let your old hens get used to them.then let them put them on the roost at all the hens wakeup togather.
