    I am going to get two phoenix chickens tomorrow. One cockeral and one pullet, 4 months old each. I can't wait! Anyone wanna tell me how to introduce them to my 20 ten week olds?

    Are you going to keep them seperate at first? Maybe then slowly introduce them to each other. They are bigger but the existing chickens outnumber them. I introduced mine slowly at first with chicken wire between them.

    Good luck and congratulations on your new chickens.

    PM me or email me. We have really great success integrating our 8 week old with the older hens.
