New Chicken Owner

Good evening from Shropshire, UK

Wet and rainy here on the Shropshire hills, 6 chicken all gradually getting used to new home, introduced 2 at a time. Last 2 being a bit picked esp my little barred rock called Linda. Back of neck a bit sore and inflamed so will step back a bit and give them all some breathing space meantime (its a bank holiday here) put emergency Vicks vapourub and ordered some iodine to clean it with, feel very guilty as she is the smallest and I had an inkling she may be picked on. Other hens are 2 Bluebells, 1 Warren, 1 Suffolk Utility and a Rhode Rock (we think)
So Trish, Shirley, Janet, Jackie, Sandra and Linda say Hi!

Welcome to Backyard Chickens!

I use Blukote here for wounds. It is an anti septic and colors the wound blue so that the chickens will not go after the red bloody look.

Go slow with introducing them. Add the new ones in after dark. Put them on the roost next to the old ones. Remove in the morning if the get too rough
