I've read many threads on introducing new chickens to an existing flock and I feel pretty confident I shouldn't have issue but I would feel better if I got some feedback. I have 7 girls that are 10 months old in a "Taj Mahal" of a coop and run (plenty of room for 40 hens according to my farming friend). I couldn't resist 5 more chickies last week and they are currently in a brooder in my basement. I am hoping to marry the two flocks sometime in June when the little chicklets have feathered and are big enough to defend themselves against the big girls. I know pecking order will need to be re-established but I am hoping for little confilict. My thought was to section off a good part of the coop with chicken wire and have the newbies in for a day or two so each group could see each other before letting them out in the run together. My questions are: Is there anything else I should do to ease the meeting of the peeps? Unfortunately I can't section off the run as I only have one way in and out from the coop so I wold have to bring them out one at a time to any sectioned area via the outside doors then back in the same way. Is two days long enough before I let them comingle in the run as well?
