A different type of integration question... I have a 6 year old (non-laying) hen who has been living alone in a very small original Eglu since last fall when her companion died. This spring, I got 5 new chicks, and built a coop and run big enough for all of them. I put the chicks out there about 10 days ago, at 5 weeks old. Over the last week, I've brought the old hen in for supervised visits, but I don't think they're accomplishing much. The babies all huddle in the corner or run into the coop and avoid her. The hen gorges on chick food, then stands by the door and loudly asks to be let out. Occasionally, she'll throw a mean look towards the chicks, but seems pretty uninterested in them. Should I just move the old hen in permanently or is it too soon? Should I put her in the coop at night? It seems a bit different than most integration questions, since there are 5 chicks and the new coop is their turf, so only one adult hen needs to fit in. So far she has shown no inclination to be violent with them, just a few threatening gestures. Mostly, she just wants to leave. Thoughts?
