Hi all, I'm new to this site. I hope this is the right place to post. I've owned chickens for a couple of years now (mostly marans Black and copper) and today I bought 3 new ones. I'll give you an idea of the set up. We have a 2500m2 garden and the chickens are allowed to roam around at will all the time. We also have 3 bantams in a pen, bringing up marans chicks. I let the chickens out of their boxes when I brought them home and 2 were fine and obviously loving it (Othello the roo did his business immediately!) But one of them was desperate to get into the pen with the bantams and chicks. I stayed with them for a bit and rounded this new chicken to the others and she seemed ok. When I came out into the garden about 1 hour later, she had managed to peck through 2 layers of netting and was in with them. The chicks (nearly 5 weeks old) weren't harmed, but the bantams were pretty perturbed - making lots of noise. I got her out and put her with the others and since, she's stayed there. I assume she did this because she has always been kept in pens and not used to open spaces? I'll have to keep a very close eye on her! Grateful for any opinions.
