About a month ago we got 8 day old pullets. Since we won't be getting eggs until around Sept, we were thinking about getting 2 older hens (about 9 months old) so we can start enjoying eggs a little sooner. Currently we have our flock in a brooder until they get their feathers, which we will then move to an outdoor coop. What would be the best way to go about introducing these two, or should we just wait it out? We were thinking of allowing the older 2 to roam the coop and bring the younger ones into the run for a while each day (probably kept within a dog kennel inside the run). Do they need to be with the older ones constantly to get acquainted? And with 8 smaller ones, will they integrate better since they will out number the older ones? Thanks!
