After a predator attack a couple of weeks ago, we were life with only one hen, a mean silkie bantam. She seriously hates everyone, but she got along fine with the hens we used to have.
We just added 5 8-week old pullets, and we kept them separate for the whole first week using the playpen method (look but don't touch). Today I tried to let them interact a bit to see how the Silkie would do, but the first thing she did was start chasing the chicks and pecking at them.
Will she ever get used to them and play nice? Or does she have to go?
