Welcome!! :welcome

29 chickens! How amazing!
Yeah I'm not sure if it is so amazing at times haha because trying to combine their housing areas is tough when you have 4 that a totally Chicken haha of the flock of established 7 all Hens. I have tried introducing them they have their own separate pens and coop but I need the pen they are in for our (8) Bantams.
