    hi all, i need some help,

    i have two bantam chickens, and they have been used to the entire run of of the coop for over a year now . .

    i have recently acquired some rescue battery hens from a battery farm, and have been landed with eight of them. they are all about a year old, and i need to somehow introduce them to the pen.

    so far, i have split the inside coop into two so that the birds can see each other and (hopefully) get used to eachother

    i am just worried about the next stage . . introducing them to each other properly.

    any ideas on how i should go about this?

    help much appreciated!!!!

    oh . . one of my worries is the difference in size, as the ex battery hens are quite a bit bigger than my bantams
