Hello,

Due to some unforeseen issues, our small flock (we had 3 or 4 together) is now down to 1. We got 4 new chicks in early April and are getting closer to when we are wanting to introduce them to our lone girl, named Aretha because she will survive. I know that when adults out number chicks, then you need to be concerned for the chicks, but I am wondering if these 4 could stress out Aretha. What is the best way to do this? Also, am I right in being concerned for the ol' girl?

Thanks.

She will be happy to have some company and actually she will pick on them a bit starting out to show them she is the boss.
