    I'm sorry, I just noticed that you didnt get a response yet. Unfortunately, I havent had any experience introducing new members to a flock. It looks like a couple of days have passed, are they getting along any better?

    (If not, I think I remember seeing a thread on here with a similar topic... do you know how to use the "Advanced Search" at the top? Just put in 'introducing new members' (maybe add 'to flock') and narrow it down to search only in the Goose forum, it should come up with something.

    And I'm sure others will chime in with their experience as well [​IMG]

    i also dont have alot of experience. I do know that the different temperment of some breeds can make this dificult. But I have no experience with either of the breeds mentioned. Good Luck!

    They need to have a shared sturdy fence line for a week or more until they stop being aggressive towards the Steinbacher pair. You may never get them all to free range together, or after a week or two of shared fence they become fine together.
