    Here is my attempt to introduce the new girl. Drop some treats inside and out side the cage and let them "break bread" together.......


    4 of the 5 girls meeting the new girl (New girl is an Olive egger, to be named later)

    Nice of you to break them in slowly, it is best that way. I had to introduce a new EE last year to my flock. Took a few weeks, but she's just part of the gang now.

    That's a really awesome concept. [​IMG] When I introduced ours, I brought them onto the floor and let them mingle and do their thing. I never thought of giving 'em food before while meeting! Great idea!

    I did that, I got 6 week old pullets and fed scratch to them and my hens on either side of the wire every day until they were old enough to be introduced. I figure it's a kind of positive re-inforcement. Chicken brain: Treats are nice + new faces come with treats = new faces are nice!
