    Just bought a new blue Andalusian rooster I have put him in a small cage because he was freaking out ideally I would like to introduce him to my girls but don't know the way to get him to calm down any help in this would be much appreciated. His wings are clipped. He'll be going in with araucana hens white leghorn hens and buff orpington hens. My older girls and rooster have already been separated into another coop adjacent to the larger coop. Is this gonna be an issue???

    After quarantine if you can pen him next to your hens for a few days then just let them out together. Do your hens free range? I've introduced roosters that way and so have others I've known and there has never been a problem.
    Sometimes the rooster may want to go back to his cage for a night or two but usually either right away or after a very few days he will follow the hens into their coop.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think the best integration method is called "The look but don't touch," method. If you put that in the search box it should come up.
