I bought and raised 4 chickens this year. A month or so ago, I purchased two more pullets. After quarantine time, I added them to the coop with a wire wall between them and my 4 other chickens (3 pullets and 1 roo). By the way, all of the chickens are the same age and mostly same size now, except the roo, which is larger than all of them. I tried to mix them, but my original flock attacks them and the two newer pullets go back in on their side and fly up high in the coop and that is where they stay all day long. No dust baths, no scraps (other than what I can throw up on that perch). My original pullets go in on the new pullets side and patrol below them from time to time. They are all 4 1/2 months old. Question- Do you think I should force them off the perch (it's a slanted flat board perch) and put them together in the pen and let mine go at them until their pecking order is established or let them work it out, stay up high in the coop, and choose when they want to come down and get pecked on? It's been going on for over a week. Oh, and I can't free range them yet, as I have a backyard coop and they fly over the fence when loose. I can't keep being the crazy chicken lady chasing chickens all over the neighborhood, and there is a big dog behind one of those fences. I want to clip wings to prevent chaos, but I want the new pullets to be able to fly up high away from my original flock.
