Hi BYC, I have owned 3 chooks for about 6 months now. They are free range chooks and were doing very well, laying lots of eggs, etc. until today. My friend has a large property, and used to have about 50 chickens. However, they had to let them go to make room for another horse. They sent them all to a farm in the country, but one was hiding and they left her behind. We said we'd take her in since she had nowhere else to go. Problem is, this chicken (her name is Millie) seems to be scaring off the flock. She's quite a small girl, half wynedot and unknown other breed, but she's very fierce. She's challenged the dominant chicken, and now the girls are scared of her. I keep finding them huddled together on the other side of the yard, while Millie wanders alone. Millie seems to be lonely now, and obviously I want them all to get along so there won't be dramas with them sleeping in the coop. I think this should get better with time, but all the same I don't want my flock separated or outside the coop. Any ideas on how to get them to make friends more quickly? I'm a novice, so I'm no expert on these sorts of situations. Thanks!
