Hi, we are in Massachusetts and decided to try raising chickens. We have five hens and two roosters 20 weeks old. The two roosters were a surprise and are now going to a farmer friend in need. So I just ordered three starter pullets to add to my flock. I'm now freaking out because I didn't research enough about adding to existing flock. I didn't know I have to quarantine them for weeks and how upset my girls will be and they will try to kill one another. I also do not have room to build another coop. I so need help!

I think the best article on flock integration is "The look but don't touch," method if you put that in the search box it will pop up for you.

Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. Seems you have a little juggling to do, since you have one coop. A dog crate or something like it will be fine to use for your new arrivals, both for quarantine and introductions.

Good luck
Ct
