    Hi all
    I ordered 6 more girls to arrive around 3/20. So excited! 2 EE's, 2 RIR's, and 2 SLW(silver laced wyandottes) My question is: At what age can I fully integated them with my flock? Once they feather out I have a small coop/run to keep them in so the big girls can get used to them. At what age can I put them in the regular coop? Whats the best method? The feed store said the local chicken guru recommends putting the new girls in the roost at night. Any thoughts?
    Thank you!
    Terry

    You'll have to wait till they're almost the same size.... but a lot of folk start by letting them all free range together.

    Good luck & Congrats
