Hello!! I have two hens, a Swedish Flower hen and a barred rock hen that are just gonna be too big to keep with my little birds. I have a little spot in my coop I could keep them in the morning and at night that could hopefully get them used to my other hens and the other big hens to them. I did this with some previous babies and it worked a charm and I think since outside time will be lessening due to on coming heavy rain would make it so the girls could all be in the coop together and get used to each other before they fully get integrated. But a bit ago, I was attempting to hold an injured rooster in there and he spontaneously died the next day. The coop is always being cleaned so they stay healthy and happy, but I’m worried that that sectioned off part of the coop may still be contaminated. Should I be worried about that and just work with the girls to make sure they’re not getting picked on too hard? I, unlike my mother who worries about her favorites, have a thick skin and know that so long as there’s not blood it’s all just flock adjustment to having new members. My big girl flock has really never shown any aggression even when it comes to the pecking order, they let in a lone buckeye hen that was about 2 years old and barely blinked an eye and she grouped with two other young hens I had before. I know young girls can have a tough time when they just starting to grow up though. I know this is a big ramble but if anyone could decipher it and give me some advice I’d be so grateful.
