Picked up 2 mature Hens today to add to my small flock, which includes, 3 Bantam Roos, all reared together, 5 Bantam Roscombe cross hens, 1 Barred Rock X Hen. The 2 newcomers are 1 Sussex/Leggern X and 1 Barred Rock X. I placed the 2 newbies into the "Fish Tank" aka segragation in sight, but a cage barrier from the others. Barred Rock X layed egg within hours too. I did aloow the duo out, with the others, but my older Barred Rock hen gave the new White Hen a bit of a lickin, so keeping them seperated for now. Here are some pics, will kep these new birds apart, but insight of the otheres for a time, then will let them out and allow the pecking order to be established.
