Have lav araucana chicks which will run with my adult hybrids next year. Also, want an unrelated roo, so thought that introducing an adult first, before 4 month old pullets would ease the hybrids in a bit. I can get one, but how exactly do I introduce them? In the morning? At night? I can't segregate them in the other coop as it has my chicks in... should I crate him in the run for a few days? Or just let him in and see what happens? Am planning on getting one of last year's hatched roos, so will actually be a little older than my hybrids (they only started laying about a month ago, so are about 5/6 months old)

put Him in and see what happens. Sometimes they dont bother them at all. sometimes they fight. Every times different. for me i put mine in at night and i try to keep a close eye out in the morning

. But i once put a bantam roo in and they picked on him bad. so i put him in a caige in the middle of th coop and after 3-4 days he was fine with them
