    Hi I'm new to the chicken world but have done research on basically everything you can about chickens before I got my first 3 bantams about 11 weeks ago ... I raised poppy, angel and queenie from 3 week old chicks they are the friendliest chicks you would ever meet .... But everything changed when we found out my beloved pekin queenie was a rooster ... We tried to keep her but she started to crow and we couldn't keep him in the city :( so we took him back to the breeders and ended up coming home with Millie the 8 week old black araucana , after being quarantined Millie was let out to meet my girls ... But the girls dissided they didn't want Millie to be part of their flock ... So now it's angel and poppy ..... And then about 2 steps away Millie :/ Millie isn't to use to human contact yet so everything is a bit awkward. I'm hoping everything works out on its own soon but I'd love some ideas please so I can help them become closer and be the 3 amigos again :)

    Any ideas/ tips would be helpful !!! Thank you :)

    Love my girls !!! <3

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Sorry Queenie turned out to be a roo and you had to return him. There are some articles in the BYC Learning Center about integrating birds, it does take awhile for them to accept a newcomer https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/adding-to-your-flock

    Welcome to BYC. Chicken society is a lot like 'cruel girls' in high school. It will take time, but she will eventually be accepted.
