We have 5, 30 week old hens (2 black austrolorps and 3 easter eggers) The farm down the street was selling some of their 2 1/2 RIR to replenish their flock. I brought 8 of them home along with a young (under a year) Black Austrolorp rooster. HHHHOOOOWWWW do I mix these flocks? Should I mix the rooster in with my 5 existing birds to get them used to a "he" first? Should I keep him with the girls he has been used to, and let them all mix together at once (free ranging) Right now I have the two coops in the same area ( i know these people and their birds well) , my 5 who I let free range all day have been checking them out and hanging out around the new coop seeing what all this is about. I have kept the "new girls, and guy" in the coop. What next?
